Update on 100,000 killer bees attack: A swarm of Africanized honeybees that attacked two Tampa, Fla. workers Wednesday have been destroyed. The hive with all the aggressive insects was removed after the park workers were hospitalized from dozens of bee stings.
Rodney Pugh, one of the men attacked by the killer bee swarm, described the shocking encounter from being stung dozens of times:
"So I'm trying to swat, and they say never swat bees, so they were all in my face, on my back, and in my shirt. So I jumped out of the payloader and ran for my office.
"My ears and right here were just throbbing with pain. It's the worst feeling because you just had so many and they wouldn't stop."
Ahead of the attack of the killer bees, Pugh and another worker were in the process of cleaning up a lot of rubbish and trash in the park.
When one of them turned over an old rubber tire -- an ideal bee hive location -- thousands of honeybees began stinging the men, who ran and swatted the attacking insects, to no avail.
Even after running nearly 80 feet away from the angry bees, the stinging attack continued.
Luckily, the men made it to the office before being totally overcome by the aggressive insects; African honeybees are known to pack a lethal punch, especially to anyone with a bee sting allergy.
Lesson learned: Don't go looking under large objects in parks or wooded areas without proper precautions.
After the 100,000 killer bees attack in Florida, an expert says more swarms are possible; the season is just beginning.
