Africanized bees, or “killer bees,” are the result of cross-breeding between African and European honey bees. Since invading the U.S. in the 1980s, these bees have become permanent residents in Nevada and Arizona. Don’t waste your time or risk your safety trying to identify Africanized bees; they’re almost identical to European honey bees and can only be identified with the help of the trained eye of a pest professional.
Are Africanized Bees Dangerous?
These hybrid bees can become aggressive and dangerous if they swarm and sting you multiple times. If their hive is disturbed, they’ll even chase down their victims for almost a quarter of a mile! Africanized bees pose an even bigger threat to your home or business if they build their hive in your yard or on the side of your building.
