Q24N PANAMA – Another bee attack has stung in Latin America, this time in Panama. Killer bees have been terrorizing the residents of the municipality of Loma Bonita in Rio Hato for several months. The swarm, becoming increasingly larger in size, can currently be found on top of a utility pole and a mango tree.
Residents said that they feel imprisoned as they can’t even stand in the doors of their homes without being attacked. They also have to be careful as to not create any noise that may upset the swarm.
The bees have already killed three dogs and several chickens, and adults are now afraid that they will soon start attacking children.
