Bee Season Officially Here

(KCEN)—A day after bees killed two dogs in Waco, Allen Miller was out doing what he does best… getting rid of bees.

The owner of Bees Be Gone, warns with bee season in full swing, don’t try to be a hero and remove a swarm yourself.

“When you try to take it on yourself you’re probably going to get hurt,” says Miller.

A big reason why, there is no way to tell the difference between a normal bee and an Africanized bee.

“The only way I can tell is when they approach me,” says Miller. And if you’re not wearing a protective beekeeper suit, you’re going to get stung.

Miller says the best way people can stay safe is to prevent bee hives from getting too big. Keep an eye on your property and look for bees coming and going. Bees like to make their hives in quiet areas, that are often undisturbed. But if you do come under attack, start running.

“The worst thing you can do is jump in the pool or jump in the lake because when you come out they’re waiting. The best thing you can do is get in your car turn the engine on, roll the windows up turn the cold air on you.”
