Bees – May 2 2009

May 02, 2009

Trails, Disney Barns & Berm: A rider reported today that while riding near bee activity (which is normal in this valley), the bees swarmed and attacked her and her horse. She reports they were bitten many times and ran for at least a couple hundred yards before the bees gave up the chase. The location is 50 yards east of the old, green, dilapidated Disney barns, just south of Cathedral and Vireo trail intersection. County Parks has been notified.

UPDATE JULY 6 County Parks Rangers report three nests were removed, and there is one nest remaining. Rangers say the remaining nest appears to be much less agressive. Please report bee attacks to the County Parks.
