Hiker Found Dead Bee Stings - In 2013, a hiker and his dog were found dead in the Santa Rita Mountains located in Arizona. Both died from a deadly amount of bee venom. Investigations claim they could have disturbed a colony of bees that lead to the deadly attack.

The hiker found dead bee stings has been identified as Steven Johnson. The 55-year old was accompanied by his dog during his hike in the Santa Rita Mountains. However, he failed to come to work which prompted the search.

Santa Cruz County Sheriff found Johnson's lifeless body hanging off Mount Hopkins. The body of his dog was found right beside him as well. Hiker found dead bee stings has caused a flurry amongst the community. The aggressive bees in the area have already caused much worry.

"Friends of ours have been run off and had to leave their equipment and then have to go back another day because the bees are swarming. And they are mad," shares Eric Rhicard, Johnson's friend in a report by NY Daily News.

The hiker found dead bee stings in Arizona might not have been so lucky, but for another hiker in Mount Washington trail things have been pretty lucky. The hiker identified as Claudia Dudley was immediately rescued after being stung by a bee.

To avoid another incidence of hiker found dead bee stings, here are things to be wary of for those who love to hike or climb:

1. The grey paper hornet nest is the size of a football and would usually be attached to a branch. It sometimes reaches two to 20 feet above the ground.

2. Be wary of tiny holes were yellow jacket hives come in and out of. This could be the home of wasps were thousands live inside.

3. Rock overhangs and building eaves are the common homes for paper wasp nests.

4. Honey bee hives favour large and old hollow trees.
