Thanks for the heads up.

Bees in huge swarms are usually “Africanized honeybees” that you can hear them buzzin from a distance. They are usually in big swamps in May & June with all the blooming flowers. I have heard of the following recommendations 1. Wear light-colored clothing. 2. Remain clam and don’t swat or swing at them but just try to leave. 3. Try not to get stung because that will┬árelease tagging pheromones, potent chemical signals that will attract and arouse more bees to you. 4. After a safe distance away, stop and check your clothing and pack to make sure there aren’t any still crawling on you. Bee careful.
