South Texas is home to all kinds of scary critters. Snakes, gators and sharks all call South Texas, or the waters near it, home.
Should dangerous beehives be exterminated?
But deadlier than all three of those animals is the bee. Bees cause more fatalities than any other animal in the U.S., according to an analysis of mortality data by the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta.
Recently, two men in the Crossroads were killed by bee attacks, and several more people have reported injuries and even hospitalizations after they were stung multiple times. As more attention is devoted to the issue of how to best coexist with the sometimes deadly insects, local residents have to consider how to handle beehives after an attack.
