Zombie Bees Ravage Washington State


The infection is as grim as it sounds: "Zombie bees" have a parasite that causes them to fly at night and lurch around erratically until they die.

And experts say the condition has crept into Washington state.

"I joke with my kids that the zombie apocalypse is starting at my house," said Mark Hohn, a novice beekeeper who spotted the infected insects at his suburban Seattle home.

That's not funny, mister. Out of all my Zombie Apocalypse preparations, I don't have a thing to help me and my family survive zombie bees.

What do I need? One of those fly-swatter pistols? A miniature tiny chainsaw? Spoiled honey?
