“Throw that veil away and get you a bee suit”

With noticeably more aggressive bees in Wichita Falls, Texas, the Red River Valley Beekeepers Association are taking more precautions:
“I just spent another $100 to get me another suit because I'm scared of those things,” Bennie Watson, association president, said, zipping into a suit with more reinforcements. “I'm not going to take any chances.”

“Throw that veil away and get you a bee suit,” he advised members.
Hybridized bees, reported to be not fully Africanized bees, today killed an emu near the town.
