Pflugerville, TX (KXAN/CNN) - A worker in Texas was hospitalized this morning after he was stung about 300 times by swarming bees.
It happened in an industrial area of Pflugerville, outside of Austin.
A beekeeper found more than 125,000 Africanized hybrid bees inside an old wooden dresser at the site.
"When a queen emits a pheromone that she's nervous, things are going on outside that she doesn't like. She emits a pheromone thousands and thousands of bees fly out of the hive to go find out what's going on," said Keith Huddle with Keith's Bee Service.
Three others, including a police officer, also were stung bringing the swarm under control.
Traffic was diverted away from the area to prevent anyone else from getting hurt.
