    Killer Bees blamed for FL Death

    http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/n...,5781293.story

    So-called killer bees may have claimed their first human victim in Florida, state officials said Friday in announcing a fatal attack earlier this week in remote Okeechobee County.

    The victim, whose identity was not released, suffered more than 100 stings Wednesday when he was swarmed while trying to demolish a trailer. Rescuers attempted cardiopulmonary resuscitation for 40 minutes and placed the man on life support, but he died of a severe allergic reaction.

    They need to put as much energy hunting down these bees as they did hunting for the canter in the fruit trees. There was some big fuzzy looking bee flying around our pool yesterday and scared me back in the house.
