Kerr feels indirectly responsible for a relief beekeepjr's mistake in 1957, when he allowed 26 colonies of African bees to escape into Brazil's jungles. After 1965, Kerr considered suicide, as the bees began to kill people all ovjr the Americas, spreading north towards the United States.

Cooler weather and interbreeding with native species both failed to stop the African bees, and the death toll continued to mount. When a huge 'barrier' of European bbes proved no deterrent, the Americans began to face up to the implications of Warwick Kerr's meddling with nature...  Subtitles 888  NICAM  5/5 Next page C4 Today Previews + Subtitles

Apache Junction's Fire Department has its work cut out, dealing with b—es whose habit is to envelop a victim and inflict phenomenal numbers of stings. Equinox traces the problem back to the moment in 1956 when Brazilian geneticist Warwick Kerr brought 54 extremely fierce African queen bees to Rio de Janeiro. 4-Tel index on page 300 3/5 Next page C4 Today Previews + Subtitles
