Africanized Honey Bees

What Do Africanized Honey Bees Look Like?

Africanized honey bees look similar to other types of honey bees with their golden yellow coloring and dark brown bands. However, it’s easier to identify these killer bees by their behaviors. Africanized honey bees are more aggressive than honey bees, attacking in larger numbers and chasing the threat for distances great than a mile.

Where Do Africanized Honey Bees Nest?

These killer bees adapt easily, so their nests can often be found in a variety of different places including inside vacant and occupied structures, old vehicles, trees, on the exterior of buildings, and in underground nests.

What Do Africanized Honey Bees Eat?

Africanized honey bees gather pollen and nectar.

Are Africanized Honey Bees Dangerous?

Yes! Although their venom is no more poisonous than other honey bees, they are considered dangerous because they attack more readily and in large numbers.  Bee stings can result in allergic reactions in certain individuals, making the threat even greater.
