Africanized Bees At The Technological University of Panama

Animals & PetsFrightened are some students, administrators and teachers of Technological University of Panama by the presence of Africanized bees on an electric pole. Firemen responded to the campus to control the situation, but they are having problems with the electrical cables, because making contact with them might be dangerous. (Dia a Dia)

Editor's Comment: All of the honey bees in Panama are "Africanized" - so leave them alone if you see them, especially near a nest or a swarm - because they will light you up if they get agitated. The firemen normally put on their protective gear and spray a combination of soapy water and insecticide on the nest to kill the bees, but in this case they apparently can't use their favorite trick, because they might get "sparky" when the water based solution hits the electrical cables.
