Bug Related Incident

This is probably one of the most terrifying stories ever…Two Florida park employees were removing trash and were attacked by 100,000 killer bees!!!


Two Tampa park employees were attacked by over 100,000 Africanized killer bees after they accidentally ran across their hive. They were removing trash from near the entrance to a park (Picnic Island Park) when they overturned an old tire and found the hive. They were swarmed by thousands of bees and were both stung over 100 times. The men were treated at the hospital with antibiotics and swelling reducers. An exterminator who came out to take care of the hive said they likely came across on a ship from Africa or South Africa and had been living here for years. More bees are probably living around the Tampa area.

Slacker is terrorfied of bugs and refuses to touch any type of bug, he agrees they are good for his garden but prefers to not interact with them.

maggot mobile
Some friends and I went camping. A few days later my car smelled bad. I couldn't find anything. A day or so later, I come out to my car and see a PILE of maggots on the passenger side floor. I grabbed 2 pieces of cardboard and started scooping them out (totally freaked out the whole time). I throw them on the ground and stomp on them. When I get to the bottom of the pile, they are stuck in the carpet. I grabbed scissors and CUT my carpet out to get rid of them. Turns out, a mouse had babies in the vent. The maggots were in there eating them until there was nothing left (little empty pieces of fur shaped like mice were found in my vent). It was disgusting. From then on, I referred to my car as the maggot mobile!
