CORPUS CHRISTI - A bee attack sent a Corpus Christi couple to the hospital this morning.

Vector control officials say the couple was using a weedeater at their home on Broughton, and the vibrations from the weedeater disturbed a hive under a dog house.

The man and the woman, both in their fifties, were taken to the hospital.

There condition is not known at this time.

This is the second bee attack we've had this week.

Tony Pantoja from Vector Control says this is the time of year for it.

"This is the season for them to be moving... A lot of calls coming in," he says.

A word of warning to everyone out there.
