A Moody man was killed today by a swarm of bees that also sent a woman that came to his aid to the hospital in serious condition.

 

The man was mowing when he hit a beehive that sparked a swarm.  He managed to make it to a neighbor’s house to try to fight them off with a water hose, but eventually succumbed to the swarm.   A woman that tried to help was transported to the hospital in critical condition.

The bees were described as Africanized bees that are very aggressive and dangerous by the police officer that was there.

It’s that time of year that insects are getting worse and snakes are starting to become more of a problem for Central Texas residents.  Check here to see a guide of poisonous snakes and reptiles in Central Texas, and here for a list of the poisonous insects in our area.
