    Default Arizona bee attack death.

    Not much detail, but a bee sting death reported in Nogales, Arizona.

    Probably died as a result of running drugs from Mexico, and the Cartel got um!

    That is not a fun story. I can't imagine being stung so many times. I wonder if these were AHB? I'm surprised it doesn't mention, maybe I am just feeding the fire against AHB - to be honest I don't really know anything about them other than what you stereotypically see on TV.

    BTW, I assume Dave Warren's comment was tongue-in-cheek - and while I thought it may be out of place, the response was a bit overbearing and essentially calling him stupid doesn't seem to be much more on topic.

    I am thinking AHB too and it is a shame they don't mention this; will add to the bee hysteria. It is a horrible way to die and my sympathies are with his family.

    Gentleman I got my bees from was usda inspector when they had a program in az and I was told that most bees here carry some, some, AHB genetics, except what gets brought in or lives where AHB haven't gone or had offspring go to.
    I lived down on the border for a while and there were bees all over. Very prolific there, where there's water.

    I think it takes a couple weeks to get AHB genetic test results back from the lab. By the time the department of Ag gets the answer, the press will be bored with the story.

    Wouldn't any hive have gone into major defense mode if its hive were disturbed like that? Their hive could have been established inside the tire, not just under it, and the man goes and picks it up????! And doesn't the same thing happen when people run over wasp nests with their tractors? I'm just asking if this behavior is characteristic of a Non-AHB hive. Plus, people do some pretty stupid things around hives, and I wonder if we'll ever know the whole story. Maybe we do already, but I'm just sayin'.

    Lighten up Jeff.

    The article doesn't mention Honey bees at all. Might have been wasps, hornets, etc.

    A study showed that European bees would chase an intruder 100-150 feet to protect the hive. A few guards would do the chasing.

    The Africanized bees would chase 1100+ feet and send a bunch more guards to do it.

    I agree, such ignorance is not necessary.

    Not condoning Dave's comment but he most likely read about the drug cartels under the article post and decided to make light of a tragic situation. We all say inappropriate things on occasion and I'm sure Dave didn't mean much by it. Once you hit the reply button though its too late.

    The first link to the Tucson News mentions that the bees were africanized.
