The Gadsden County Sheriff's Office says that the buzz around town could wind up being a dangerous thing...

Gadsden County Sheriff Morris Young spent part of today visiting with a bee keeper to become better informed about the honey making insects. Young says that the Sheriff's Office has seen a major uptick in bee hive calls. Just yesterday a resident called about a bee hive that was suspected to be a deadly Africanized type of bee.

Sheriff Young: "We've seen where they've gotten into houses, and once you peel back the boarding in the house, you see this large comb of bees, and it can destroy a home."

Young says if you find a large nest you should call the Sheriff's Office. They will then contact local bee keepers who can save the nest and the bees and eventually harvest the honey.
