i read that and that he was treated and released.  i was thinking that he was one lucky guy to be able to take that many stings and go home after.

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

I like doing cut-outs, but I love catching swarms!

Two years ago on a Saturday I received two 911 dispatch calls about bees that were coming out of the sky and stinging people at a particular location. A lady and her husband arriving home after breakfast stepped out of their vehicle and both having been stung several times ran down the block and entered a neighbor's house who had also been stung by bees coming from the sky.

He was the other 911 call.

I knocked on his door and he and the husband & wife were in that house describing the event to me.

She asked if I would't mind placing her keys in her purse and placing them on the seat of her car after picking them up off the sidewalk.

Long story short after surveying the area and having bees come out of the sky and sting me, I discovered a guy had tried spraying a swarm of bees that were on the back of a military trailer in his back yard with a fire extinguisher.

The closer I got to that house the crazier it got and the meaner the bees were. Three feet from the swarm on the ground was the fire extinguisher.
