Transcript of killer bees

what are killer
bees?
Killer bees (more properly called African honey bees),earned their "killer" reputation for their more aggressive way of defending their nests.


why are killer bees so killer?
African honey bees are faster to respond to potential threats. Their venom is actually not that deadly, but they make up for it in numbers. African honey bees may sting ten times more then their calmer cousins.
where are killer
bees?
Killer bees arrived in the U.S. in 1990, and now live in Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas, and the southern part of California. In recent years, killer bees have also been found in Florida, mostly in the Tampa area.
In the 1950's, biologists in Brazil were trying to breed a honey bee that would make more honey in tropical environments. They imported honey bee queens from South Africa and made experimental hybrid colonies near Sao Paolo. sometimes these types of experiments get out of hand, some of the hybrid bees – Africanized bees – escaped and established colonies.
how did killer bees get here?
"When bees attacked a Texas couple over the weekend, it seemed like a scene out of a horror film, according to the way one of the victims described the scene to the Associated Press. More than 30,000 bees swarmed the couple as they exercised their small horses. At first, the woman and one of the horses jumped into the pool to avoid the stings. There were so many bees that the sky turned dark, as if it was night, she said."
