    What shortage of bees???

    Hive of about 40,000 Africanized bees attacks, kills man in Texas

    Associated Press
    MOODY, Texas – A hive of Africanized bees has killed a Central Texas man and injured a woman who tried to help him.
    McLennan County Chief Sheriff's Deputy Matt Cawthon told the Waco Tribune-Herald that Larry Goodwin was driving a tractor in Moody about 30 minutes south of Waco on Saturday when attacked.
    Goodwin ran to a house about 50 yards away and tried to use a garden hose. A woman came out to help and was also stung. Goodwin was pronounced dead on the scene.
    Allen Miller, owner of Bee Be Gone, who later destroyed the hive, said Goodwin apparently hit a pile of wood that housed a hive. Miller estimated it contained about 40,000 bees.
    He said Africanized bees attack much more aggressively and in greater numbers than European bees.
