The two hospitalized are still in critical condition. The hives were sprayed with foam to calm the bees down, though authorities have not stated whether the insects were provoked or if the behavior was normal swarming behavior.

This isn’t Arizona’s first bee-related death this year. After being stung “hundreds of times” by dozens of bees in August in Marana County, Arizona, a man was killed and five others were stung “hundreds of times.” They were injured after disturbing a 100lb beehive, according to reports, and local apiarists were forced to deploy and relocate the hive.

Later thаt month, while mowing his lаwn in Texаs, 70-yeаr-old Thomаs Hicks wаs killed by а swаrm of аround 60,000 “very аggressive” bees.
