‘Killer Bees’ In Alpine Attack Gardener & Bee Removal Crew
A gardener working near Alpine Blvd. & Arnold Way was attacked by 40,000 bees around 10 a.m. on Wednesday. The bees were believed to be Africanized ‘killer’ honeybees because of their aggressive attack on the victim.
The patient was transported to a local hospital to be treated for multiple bee stings from the bees that were nesting in an eave directly above where the gardener was working. A second hive was found in an oak tree close by.
When Alpine firefighters arrived to the scene, the bees continued their aggressive attacks on the fire officials resulting in closing off the area and contacting the property owner, who contacted a local bee removal company to exterminate the hive.
The bee removal specialists reported the noise from the gardener’s weed eater probably disturbed the bees causing the initial bee attack in Alpine.
