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.
