Reports by various media outlets in Taiwan say a woman nearly went blind, after four bees managed to attach themselves to the woman's eyes.

The woman, whose full name was not revealed by CTS news - a Chinese news station - presented to hospital, assuming that she had an infection in her eye.

Officials said the outcome could have been much worse had Ms He rubbed her eyes more - the worst case scenario of which would have been blindness, according to Apple Daily Taiwan. They are not usually aggressive and sting only if touched.

There are now 1,000 species in the United States, Canada, and Central America, with 44 known species found in Florida.
