On January 6th, a group of men and women on their way to Tai Po's Mount Immortals mountain in Hong Kong were attacked by hundreds of wasps on their way down the mountain. Although they were scattered at the foot of the mountain, they were still injured. Five of them had to be treated by ambulance.
More than a dozen men and women who were attacked by wasps came from several different groups. At 3 p.m. on January 5, they had just crossed the Baxianling Trail and set out on their way back down the mountain. As they approached the Spring Wind Pavilion, it was suspected that hundreds of wasps had been \"irritated\" by other people on the mountain path, and they had been chased by swarms of wasps.
The police informed the fire department that a number of ambulances had been sent to rescue five of the more serious victims, who had been taken by ambulance to Nathasu Hospital in Tai Po for treatment, and that a couple had been admitted to the hospital driving their own private car.
A man surnamed he said they fled to the parking lot to pick up the car, hiding in the car only to find a few wasps in the clothes, very embarrassed, he said more than a dozen stung, the wound like fire.
The injured said they had been hiking several times and had not had a similar incident in the past. The accident was estimated to have been caused by other less experienced travelers who had mistakenly moved their yellow honeycombs.
Some senior mountain walkers pointed out that if there are patrol bees flying around the head, they should be alert, or the mountain walkers have entered the hive alert area, should use clothing to protect the head and neck as soon as possible, flying in the opposite direction to the bees quickly leave. Encounter swarm flying, do not scream run, do not wave clothes or do not slap the swarm drive, will provoke more wasps chase.
