    Makes me sick to think about. What a horrible way to go. My condolences to his family.

    Killer bees (logical assumption) can be an ominous sight in the wild. A few years back our group was in Mexico, San Luis Potosí area, doing an open air pit when a massive swarm (more like small cloud) of KBs passed overhead. I remember thinking at that time we are pretty much helpless if they choose to descend upon us.

    That's the interesting thing about them. The Africanized bees have a much greater propensity to swarm and relocate. A friend of mine said that one day while he was washing windows several stories up, hanging in his bosuns seat, he heard a sound that he couldn't explain, then he looked up and saw a cloud of thousands of bees on a mass exodus. He thought he was a dead man, but the bees kept on moving.
    I have to worry about just a single bee as I'm allergic. Epi pen anyone?
