DOUGHERTY COUNTY, GA (WALB) – Worried people who live near where Africanized bees killed a Dougherty County man this year learned how to stay safe Thursday night.

Neighbors and County Commissioner Gloria Gaines attended the information session at Eureka Baptist Church.

Bee keeper Dale Richter talked to them about the differences between European and the more aggressive killer bees and how to protect themselves.

"Run, that's the state answer. Remove yourself from the scene, get away, and inform an officials of your findings," said Dale Richter, Bee Keeper.

73-year-old Curtis Davis was killed in October when he disturbed a hive on Williamsburg Road.

It was the first time Africanized bees were found in Georgia.

Monday state officials announced they found more killer bees in two managed colonies not far away on Honeysuckle Drive.
