* [[FromMyOwnPersonalGarden From My Own Personal Apiary]]: In another RedHerring moment, Hargrove proudly informs Vicki that the honey she's enjoying with breakfast came from his very own bees.



* RedHerring
* TooDumbToLive: I mean really, it should be ''obvious'' who the real killer is. Yet Vicki buys his flimsy, stammering explanation for why he wasn't harmed by the swarming that killed Mrs. Hargrove without hesitation.

* RedHerring
RedHerring: The movie goes out of its way to make Hargrove seem like the bad guy.

Said friend, Ralph Hargrove (Guy Doleman), is a surly, despondent beekeeper. This cheerful old guy is married to a surly, despondent old woman that smokes and only pets their dog. Vicki's vacation really kicks into high gear once she meets the rival beekeeper in town, one Mr. Manfred (Frank Finlay). [[note]]Incidentally, Finlay played Iago to LaurenceOlivier's ''Theatre/{{Othello}}'' only two years before this movie's release. Unbelievable as it seems while watching ''The Deadly Bees'', Finlay also portrayed Porthos in Richard Lester's ''Film/TheThreeMusketeers1973''.[[/note]]

** Of course, the intended target of most of the attacks was Hargrove. Manfed is just an incompetent nitwit.

** Mrs. Hargrove is (at most) ten feet from her open door when she's attacked by killer bees, but just stands there, apparently never considering just ''running inside.''

* CarChase: Late in the film, Vicki tries to drive off with Hargrove's jeep in a panicked escape attempt. As this was also the late 60s, she does this wearing only a coat and underwear.
