HAMMETT Staff Writer Matt and Lisa Hattoon didnt know what to do when they found a swarm of bees on their house near the downtown area of New Braunfels Their concern would probably be mir rored by many in the same situation espe cially because of the presence of African ized socalled killer bees in the region We called everybody No one could really tell us what to said Lisa Eventually they found an exterminator Gold Star that came and killed the swarm They also contacted a beekeeper Preston Kennedy about the situation People can call the county extension ser vice which will give out the names of bee keepers These beekeepers can remove the queen and her workers Exterminators are now under law allowed to kill the bees In this case as always it was difficult to tell the difference between Africanized and European bees Both are so similar in appearance a microscope must be used to tell them apart They probably were said Kennedy a licensed beekeeper because the more docile European bees generally do not start swarming until later in the year Africanized bees aw much more aggres sive than European Because of this Kennedy said most bees not under supervi sion in a beekeepers hive will eventually be crossbred and Africanized And because they are more likely to protect or attack they are termed killer The African ized bees stings are no more powerful than European bees but the African ized bees will attack with less provocation attack in greater numbers and will pursue their target further All bees swarm African Experts say that since you can never be sure what type of bees ized bees swarm you are dealing with you should treat all bees like they are the more said Africanized variety Steve Muecke of GoldStar Africanized bees are not as aggressive when they swarm but they can be very protective of the Both stressed caution when dealing with bees There is nothing to be in fear of more like consciencous said Muecke Treat them all like they are Kennedy said Africanized bees have been here several years but many people did not notice them The city environment provides many sources of food more so than the country Weve had calls about the new recy cling bins the bees are coming to the soda said Kennedy an employee of New Braunfels Utilities He said people should wash out the cans and if bees come around wait until dark when they leave Bees generally go home at night he said but will attack a flashlight County prepares to deal with space crunch at annex By CRAIG HAMMETT Staff Writer jackpot County Commissioners and other officials are trying to decide how to improve space on the third floor of the Comal County Courthouse Annex Thursday the county attorney sug gested moving several offices in the third floor mainly affecting the dis trict Clerk county attorney and dis trict attorney County Attorney Nathan Rheinlan der said his office already was being pushed past the point of over crowding The county plans to hire another assis tant county attor ney for environ mental areas such as septic tanks casteel which would only increase the need for space Weve got a stop gap measure Carter Casteel We feel this is the most conserva tive way of doing said Rhein lander after showing the court plans for renovations Rough estimates say the work could top the mark We havent created anything with this We are just shuffling people said County Judge Carter Casteel who did not support the plan Weve got a stopgap measure The fourth floor of the annex is used for storage Commissioner J L Jum bo Evans suggested that space for office use
