Bees have the public's attention

Dougherty County 911 operators are starting to take more calls from citizens regarding bee hives in and around Albany.

The public is looking at bees in a different light after Curtis Davis was killed by a swarm of Africanized bees off Williamsburg Road, near the race track in October.

Davis was demolishing an abandoned house with a bulldozer when he disturbed a hive of the aggressive bees.

911 operators can send help if people are being actively attacked by bees, but as a routine matter, citizens should call a pest control company if they suspect that a beehive may contain Africanized, or "killer" bees.

WALB is investigating a bee hive on the Northwest section of town Wednesday morning.

We will have more details on this story later today on WALB.
