TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -
Two bee attacks in the same week have some Southern Arizona neighborhoods on edge.
The Africanized bees killed four dogs and hospitalized two more. They've also attacked humans.
Both incidents happened Thursday afternoon. The first one took place in Rancho Sahuarita and the second one near Davis-Monthan Air Force Base.
"You really can't tell until they're aggressive and attacking you," said Joe Jackson, owner of Barrier Pest Management.
He said it's his busiest time of year. "Water, everything blooming, good harborage area."
A swarm of aggressive bees killed the Moore family's three dogs last Thursday.
"You get a few stings and people go 'ouch,' but it goes deeper than that," Jackson said.
Jackson spent all day Sunday drilling holes in the Moore family's walls, but with no luck.
"It looks like we might have to pull the tiles off the roof and cut the roof open to get to it," he said.
Next door, Gabriel and Jennifer Gomez believe another hive in a tree also killed one of their dogs.
"I never thought there'd be a nest here that can kill a 120-pound dog. Our dog is huge. It's a pure-bred German shepherd."
That same day, two more dogs were hospitalized in Sahuarita after 50,000 bees were found in the attic of a two-story home.
"We've seen bees in our yard all the time. I thought they were just here for the pollinating. We never realized their hive was way up on top of our house."
Two attacks just hours apart; is it a coincidence? Maybe. But Jackson says you should always be cautious.
"It could happen to anybody. Anywhere any time," Jackson said. "It's like the house, the property in Sahuarita. They had no idea, and same with these people. They had no idea they had bees."
Jackson used a vapor to kill the bees in his house.
If you do hear or see a swarm of bees, your best bet is to call an exterminator and never try to get rid of them yourself.
Bee experts say you should never try to remove a hive yourself, no matter the cost. Jackson says the cost to remove a hive depends on the size and how hard it is to access it.
The hive pictured cost the homeowner $600. Jackson says about 75% of people don't know they have a hive inside their walls, while about 20% ignore the hive, thinking it will go away... but, it will not. It will only grow bigger and end up costing you more money in the longrun.
Had this family waited, it would've cost them around $3,500 because the honey would soak through the dry wall and cause more damage.
