Four Hospitalized After 'Killer' Bee Attack


www.foxnews.com

Four people in La Mesa, Calif. are recovering in the hospital after being attacked by a swarm of “killer” bees.

A 79-year-old woman was stung 30 to 50 times by the Africanized bees. Her 82-year-old husband was stung 20 times, San Diego 6 News reported Thursday.

The two other victims include a 36-year-old woman and her 5-year-old son.

The La Mesa Fire Department and a professional beekeeper were called in to destroy the hive located on the roof of a house.

"They (the bees) have a bad attitude,” beekeeper Mike Zito told the news station. “They're a lot more aggressive, and they're a lot more territorial."

Firemen used a fire extinguisher with soapy water to “neutralize” the hive.

On Saturday, a 53-year-old man was hospitalized after being stung "a couple thousand times" in what authorities are calling the worst bee attack around Las Vegas in 20 years.

This week alone, there was the four attacked, the man stung thousands of times, and last night on Coast to Coast, killer bees information was on the schedule.

They attack in mass and go for carbon dioxide, so for your nose, mouth, even ears.

A horse killed by a swarm at autopsy was found to have over 4 pounds in lungs, stomach and passages.

They will hunt you for 1/4 mile or more, and will lay in wait for 3 hours.

If you dive into water to rid their attack, they will wait until you come out and attack you for 3 hours it was documented.

Evidently, in 1957, the experiments of cross breeding with euro honey bees was foiled when 12 or so queens were released.

Now they are in the US and are starting to threaten more and more.

In some parts of South America, over 300 deaths a year from these hitmen of bees is common.

If attacked, pull your shirt over your head to keep them out of your breathing passages because most deaths are cause by asphixiation (sp) rather than the venom of stings.

They hate the sound of lawn mowers it is reported as well.

Just be aware!!
