Killer Bees kill one man


The Waco Tribune-Herald reported that Larry Goodwin was attacked as he drove a tractor on a neighbor's land in Moody, about 26 miles (41km) south of Waco.
The 62-year-old ran to a house about 50 yards (46 meters) away and tried to use a garden hose to ward off the swarm, according to McLennan County Chief Sheriff’s Deputy Matt Cawthon.
A woman came out to help and was also stung. Mr. Goodwin was pronounced dead at the scene.
"If anybody has any brush or anything on their lands please clear it because they don't want to go through this. Nobody needs to go through this,' Mr. Goodwin's tearful daughter Tanya told KCEN-TV.
Allen Miller, owner of Bee Be Gone, who later destroyed the hive, said the farmer apparently hit a pile of wood that housed a hive.
He estimated it contained about 40,000 Africanized bees.

"You can't believe how bad they are. They make me want to get out of this business," Mr. Miller said.

I know for many years now we have been hearing about killer bees and how there was or is an effort to stop them from spreading.

Here is some Killer Bees Fact for you
* Killer Bees swarm more often than regular bees.
* Killer Bees hate high pitched sounds.
* Killer Bees produce less honey and wax than honeybees.
* If one Killer Bee stings, it releases an alarm that smells like bananas and incites other bees to sting.
* They have been known to attack animals or people a quarter of a mile from their hives.

* Killer Bee venom has been found to lead to permanent neurological damage in victims who are stung, but do not die.
* The bees may adversely react to such things as shiny jewelry or dark clothes.
* Killer Bees can remain agitated for up to 24 hours.

This might be good to be aware of if you are a hiker or a bigfoot researcher. Remember it is very hard to tell the difference between a normal honey bee and a killer bee just by looking at them.

Be safe.
