If you know you will be working around bees, invest in a good quality bee suit.
- Africanized bees are slow fliers and most healthy people can out run them.
· Run away in a straight line, protecting your face. Avoid other people, or they too will be attacked.
- Run into a house or car.
· Do not try and hide underwater. The Africanized bee swarm will wait for you to surface.
· Seek medical attention. Some people are allergic to bee stings causing anaphylactic shock. Since Africanized bees attack and sting in great numbers, it is possible that an allergic response may be triggered.
