Bees attacked and killed a man in Tivoli Texas. A person being killed by bee stings is a rare occurrence. However, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention records approximately 100 case each year. It typically takes about 1,200 stings to threaten the life of an adult, however people who are hypersensitive can die by only one or two stings.
Bees attack while protecting their hive. When bees are in search of food or swarming they typically don’t sting people. The man was attacked while mowing a lawn. Bees are able to feel vibrations from lawn mowers and believe a lawn mower is a threat to them according to Roy Parker, an entomologist. When a bee does sting a person it puts out pheromones that stimulates other bees to attack. Experts suggest that running away is the best strategy for people being attacked by bees.
