When you’re outdoors, don’t swat at random insects, unless you want MORE to come bother you. Because when some insects are disturbed, like wasps, they emit a chemical that alerts their friends to join the attack. And Africanized bees can assault by the thousands when provoked. So don’t swat. Just move away, preferably inside. Put down anything that attracts bugs, like a sweet drink, and avoid sudden movements. If you slowly walk away, a bee usually won’t follow for more than 20 yards.
