“Gun Death” Bees

While Mowing his lawn!

Authorities say a 65-year-old South Texas man has died after being attacked by bees while mowing his lawn.

For people with bee allergies one sting can be fatal, but bee venom is toxic so a good swarm attack will kill the best of us. I once disturbed a buried nest with my lawn mower, but I saw the hole expanding and the menacing yellow cloud, and I ran for the bee spray and hosed the nest down before any harm could come of it.

Hey, but not a “Gun Death”, so it doesn’t count!

    Africanized bees ARE getting further and further North and there will be more of these sad stories…

    Weer’d:

    Next time use fire. Bees and hornets flee from smoke and fire.

    Stinging insects that tried to attack flame didn’t get to breed much.
