Bee Season Underway in Tucson

The Tucson Fire Department dealt with seven bee swarm incidents over the weekend, and a few people were stung.

"Our call volume for bee-related calls skyrockets during the month of April," said Tucson Fire Capt. Barrett Baker. During an attack, "cover up your face as much as possible, because if it is a true attack they're going to be stinging you - eyes, nose, mouth, ears - so try to pull something over your face to give yourself that protection."

If you encounter bees at your home that aren't showing signs of aggression, you will have to handle the situation on your own and call a bee removal company.

Tucson isn't the only city experiencing bee activity this month. At least 15 people were attacked outside of a Phoenix mosque last Friday.
