Residents Concerned about Potential Danger of Bees following Fatal Incident
LOS FRESNOS – A Rio Grande Valley man is dead after a bee attack that took place in Mercedes.
Nearby neighbors are worried about the potential danger of bees after a man died due to bee stings.
KRGV’s John Paul Barajas rode along with a bee removal expert in Los Fresnos to learn more.
Bee expert Luis Slayton tells CHANNEL 5 NEWS the bees are more aggressive at the moment and explains why Africanized bees are more dangerous than European bees.
"As soon as they brewed and honey stored in a hive that's when they are going to attack to kill to protect their hive,” says Slayton.
He says to keep an eye out when working outside in an area with bee hives to avoid being stung by a bee.
