Glendale bee attacks are few and far between, so we were shocked and surprised to hear news from AZ Central detailing an incident that occurred on August 21. An elderly woman and her four-year-old granddaughter were in the grandmother’s home when a group of more than 100 Africanized bees swarmed around them and attacked.
The woman was stung on her face, in her nose, and in her mouth by dozens of bees and the little girl was also attacked, though she was able to call for help using the woman’s emergency alert system. A firefighter was also stung during the rescue. Authorities discovered that another person in the neighborhood was keeping the bees. That beekeeper will likely face charges for several misdemeanors. We are thinking of the victims and hope they recover quickly from the stings and other wounds.
How to Avoid Serious Glendale Bee Attack Injuries
This Glendale bee attack could not have been prevented, but there are ways that homeowners can protect themselves from serious bee attacks and injuries throughout the remainder of the summer.
- Keep doors and windows closed at all times unless you are exiting or entering your home.
