The University of Arizona Extension Service has these recommendations regarding encounters with Africanized honeybees:
If you discover a hive near your home, keep children and pets indoors and contact an exterminator.
If you are attacked and stung, run from the hive. Don't play dead or swat at the bees; go immediately inside a building or vehicle.
Pull your shirt over your head to protect eyes, nose and mouth, which bees tend to target.
Do not jump into a swimming pool or otherwise immerse yourself in water.
Seek immediate medical attention if you receive more than a dozen or so stings.
Remain calm and in cooled indoor conditions
Remove any stingers in the skin.
Do not take any medication without a physician's advice.
If you are predisposed to allergic reactions to bee stings, consult a physician about a preventive anti-venom first aid kit.
