Plaza Santa Cecilia Bee Nest Removed (El Mexicano, 12/10/12 by Lucía Gomez Sanchez)
TIJUANA, BC - Firefighters removed a honeycomb this morning that threatened the safety of visitors in Plaza Santa Cecilia and other passersby in the area, so it was necessary to exterminate them.
The unit was fortunate no one was injured and it avoided any further risks, because these insects cause stings and severe problems to people's health, so it was necessary to annihilate them.
The nest was in one of the parasols of an establishment in the shopping plaza located on calle segunda. The fire brigade clarified that when it attends to this type of services, they normally relocate the bees or only frighten them away, but in this area it was necessary to kill them. The nest was removed and there is no further risk. http://www.el-mexicano.com.mx/informacion/noticias/1/3/estatal/2012/12/10/635243/retiran-panal-de-la-plaza-santa-cecilia.aspx
