Meet the king of the bees

Luis Slayton is known to be the leading expert of killer bees in the Rio Grande Valley located in South Texas.

After watching this video we definitely believe him.

Wearing only a pair of jeans Slayton drills through a wall behind a massive bee-hive, exposing some of the inner layers.

Slayton's website states that he "conducts his live bee hive removals as eco friendly as possible and does not utilize a bee vacuum."

"He transfers the brood into a hive body."

In the video, Slayton works with a colleague who is fully suited in protective gear.

He appears completely calm as he completes the indoor bee hive removal even though the bees are crawling all over his torso.

Clearly a job for the brave.
