Even beekeepers can get it.

Maybe it is something about Florida that makes bees go crazy?

Don't you just love their wording, "attacked."  That's deffinately going to help how people see bees in Florida.  :roll:

Jerrymac, I don't think there's anything more here to drive bees crazy than anywhere else.  I know I'm still quite new in the practice of keeping bees but, I've only seen one hive that I would have considered crazy.  Well, they were deffensive enough to scare me away, anyways.

So you don't think those snow birds have anything to do with it?

They probably drove by to close to the hive and landed in the pool next to it.  :-D

His problem was he's allergic, not that he was "attacked".  Actually, he was "defended"... :)
