Horror Unfolds in Killer Bee Attack

As a Texas couple exercised their horses in the yard, about 30,000 killer bees swarmed in causing a scene much like one would see in a horror movie.

According to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Kristen Beauregard was stung about 200 times as she and her boyfriend ran for the pool.

“It got all dark, like it was nighttime there were so many bees.”

Her boyfriend was stung over 50 times. She went on to tell the newspaper,

We were trying stand up in the water but every time we stuck our heads out for air, they would cover us and start stinging us. We were trying to breathe and they were stinging us in the face and in the nose.”

Kristen was finally able to escape to the house where the swarm gave chase and crashed into the doors and windows.

“It was like a bad movie.”

The fire department showed up and began spraying foam at the killer bees to stop the attack. A beekeeper showed up and captured the hive.

Unfortunately, the horses, Chip and Trump, were so covered in bees, neither could be saved. The bees also killed five hens, and stung the couple’s dog.

The sting of the killer bee, or the Africanized Honey Bee, is no more potent than another variety of honey bee, and they have a similar appearance. What makes Africanized honey bees more dangerous is that they are more easily provoked, quicker to swarm, attack in greater numbers, and pursue their victims for greater distances.

In the last decade, killer bees have migrated into Texas, Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico, Florida, and southern California.
