Landscapers attacked by thousands of bees

B. Keith Councell, President, Florida State Beekeepers Association, however, said: “Definitely not Africanized bees. These bees were very timid.”

Councell deals with bees 365 days a year, and says it’s always bee season in Florida. Still, he will send the bees to be DNA-tested by the state to see if they are Africanized bees.

Councell said incidents like this can be prevented, and advises looking around homes for bees at least once a month.

If you see them – call an expert to have it taken care of.

All of the landscaping workers are fine, and they were treated by EMS at the scene.
