I saw this on an Orlando TV News program. The fact that they didn't get stung leads me to believe that they were just normal honey bees. What do you think? Larry

If the thought they were African bees, why didn't they test them. They didn't want to know that they were just european bees that were disturbed. Sounds like they just had a lot of bees in the air. Didn't sound like anyone was stung.

I would like to have seen first hand documentation of just how aggressive the bees were.    Open any hive up and still not get stung?

Pretty lame reporting and distorting!  Disservice to everybody, especially bees! 

That woman must run very fast to get away from AHB without getting stung even once.

No fun at all!
