Bee attack kills man Central Texas

Post by arb0526 » Mon Jun 03, 2013 11:06 am

Larry Goodwin was driving a tractor and apparently hit a pile of wood containing a discarded chicken coop that concealed a year-old hive of Africanized bees, said Allen Miller, owner of Bees Be Gone, who was called to remove the hive. Miller said he destroyed the hive, which contained 22 honeycombs and an estimated 40,000 bees, and returned later to find another 100 or so bees in a bucket near the first hive.
