Residents of El Chapo, Texas are on Edge after new and hostile uninvited guests numbering approximately one million, moved into their neighborhood -- according to Fox News reports. The unwelcome visitors are in the form of Killer Bees, which are threatening to attack hapless residents, who are clueless on how to get rid of this new threat.

To complicate matters further, El Chapo residents are outnumbered a thousand to one by their new neighbors. Although residents who spoke to KFOX14 said the bees started taking up residence in a vacant house in the area about three years ago, their numbers and aggression have become a cause of concern.

The residents are especially worried about their kids, whose school is only a stone's throw away from where the bees have taken up residence.

Failed attempt to remove the killer bees

In a bid to get rid of the aggressive bees from their neighborhood, residents turned to bee specialist Pyong Livingstone. Accompanied by a helper and a journalist, Rudy Reyes, from KFOX14, to document the episode, Pyong only managed to remove a part of the hive, after the bees attacked them, stinging the trio through their protective suits.

Livingstone said the bees were 20 to 30 times more aggressive than normal honeybees. The journalist described the scene he witnessed as one coming straight out of a horror movie as soon as the hatch where the bees have set up their hive was opened.

For his troubles, Reyes received eight extremely painful stings.

According to Livingstone, who also received several stings all over his body, around 100,000 of them attacked. He estimates that there are about one million mixed African and European killer bees in the hive.

Not our responsibility

Residents were forced to find their own means of getting rid of the bee menace after the city of El Paso absolved itself of the responsibility, saying it belonged to the residents since the bees were located in a home.

According to Livingstone, the walls of the home housing the beehive will have to be opened up, and then immediately sealed again, if the bees are to be successfully removed.

Killer bees have been responsible for a few deaths due to their aggressive nature. One such incident, reported by The Telegraph, occurred in 2014 after a man who was mowing his lawn was attacked by a swarm of killer bees after they became agitated by the sound of his lawnmower. An autopsy revealed that the man died of a heart attack.
