Survey of the Ministry of Health of São Paulo shows that every day, on average, six Paulistas are treated in hospitals victims of attacks by swarms of bees. From January to July this year were 1291 records across the state, according to data reported by municipalities to the Center of Epidemiological Surveillance (CVE) folder. There were four deaths.

Among the regions with the highest number of accident victims are Campinas and Piracicaba, both with 218 notifications, followed by Botucatu, with 118 cases and Araraquara, with 114 notifications (see numbers below regional). In 2011, the number of notifications in the state reached from January to December 2080, with three deaths.

Like scorpions, spiders and snakes, bees are also considered poisonous animals, because of the poison contained in the stingers. But in the case of bees notification is only compulsory in the case of victims of swarms.

The effect of the venom varies from organism to organism. Depending on the number of stings, the amount of venom injected and the delay in seeking medical help, the attacks can lead a person to death if she is allergic, for example, says Joseley Casemiro Fields, the CVE technique zoonoses.

She said accidents are usually related to the work environment as crops. So some prevention measures are essential to prevent the attacks. Among them, we recommend the use of clear and appropriate clothing, preferably white, in case of manipulation of the hives, since the use of strong colors can trigger aggressive behavior of bees.

In addition, we recommend the use of hats and clothing in manga sites conducive to the emergence of swarms. In case of accident, the trick is to remove the stingers with tweezers and seek the nearest health facility.

One should not, in any way, to squeeze the stinger he quit because this can cause it to release more venom explains Joseley.
