First Responders Advise Public on Avoiding a Bee Attack
MCALLEN — Firefighters are urging care in dealing with bees after some individuals were attacked by bees while some work was being done on the roof of a building. Four people had to be taken to the hospital after the bees attacked them when workers disturbed a bee's nest. Firefighters say not every bee attack can be avoided, but most of them can as Lt. Rene Alaniz stated, "So the best thing to do is if you see a swarm of bees stay away from them. If you see a hive that is already active in your area and no one is being attacked, call your animal warden."
