Attack of the Killer Bees
Representative Don Ames has filed a bill that would give the Agriculture, Food and Forestry Department new powers to react to protect people from Africanized honeybee attacks.
The bill would allow the state agency to quarantine locations where the bees are discovered.
What would a killer bee quarantine look like? No residents in or out of the quarantined area? Searches of the vehicles allowed out (only in cases of emergency) for stray queens? Will they use gas?
