Killer Bees, Normal Bees, and avoiding them

Tonight I watched this show called Verminators.  One of the skits was about a killer bee colony.  This got me into a bit of yak shaving and I found a USDA website about killer bees and their spread in the US. While surfing there, I came across ome tips about what to do if attacked by bees.

One of the things they warned about was something I always thought would be THE thing to do if attacked:  jumping in the water.  here’s what they say:

Do not jump into water! The bees will wait for you to come up for air.

I didn’t know that and wanted to point it out just in case anyone else was thinking along the same lines I was (the first thing I would do was jump in water).
