Asked how many times he had been stung since the bee assault started a few days ago, Malley replied, “probably six, seven, eight, nine (times).”
And then he was stung on camera. He grabbed his eye. “Oh, now 10 times,” he said.
The first calls began coming in Friday, police said. And the complaints keep on coming.
Authorities believe an ordinary honeybee hive kept by an amateur beekeeper was taken over by killer bees.
Beekeepers are spraying neighborhoods and trying to eradicate the swarms, but it has so far done little to stop the bees' reign of terror.
