- It is more protective of its home;
- It becomes angry easier;
- It chases you further; and
- It stays angry longer.

- Stay away from a bee's home; and
- Don't throw rocks or other objects at a bee's home.
If you are chased by bees:
- RUN AWAY from the bees;
- COVER your face and eyes with clothes or hands; and
- HIDE inside a house or car.
If you are stung by a bee:
- Scrape out the stinger, don't squeeze; and
- Tell your parents or another adult.
