BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB)- Some homeowners in Scotlandville are buzzing about their new neighbors; they
don't like what they see. One man says their reputation will ruin the
neighborhood and he is in the process of finding someone to force them out.
"I'm definitely scared of them," said Arthur Ransom.
Ransom says a few years ago, not many people could find the street he lives
on. But some new neighbors are attracting a lot of attention.
"I started seeing a lot of bees swarming over towards the way,"
Ransom said. He spotted the bees while cutting his grass earlier this week. He
says the amount of bees that are hanging on to a fence in a vacant lot has
grown in size. With children playing nearby, he's worried that some little ones
may get curious. It's something he's seen happen before.
"One kid got hurt - well he got stung about a year and a half
ago," he said. Ransom says the little boy was playing with a bee hive that
neighbors told him to leave alone. "The bees ran him almost a block. He
was scared to come back home. Got stuck seven or eight times."
