Africanized bee

Africanized bee, colloquially known as "killer bees", are a hybrid species of the western honey bee, Apis mellifera, which initially resulted from the hybridization of the African honey bee A. m. scutellata with diverse European honey bees such as A. m. ligustica and the Iberian bee A. m. iberiensis and the hybrid honey bee are more aggressive than any of the various European subspecies. Small swarms of Africanized bees have the ability to overwhelm European honey bee colonies by attacking the colonies and installing their own queen after killing the European queen.


The emergence of the African killer bee 

The origin of the African killer bees was in 1956, when a Brazilian scientist named “Rio Claro” brought some African bees in order to work on it and obtain a more productive breed for honey, but he could not control all the bees, as some escaped and bred with European bees in the wild, and of course The result was the "African killer bee".


African killer bees

This bee is not more toxic than normal bees as some believe, it is just fierce when it comes to defending its colony, it attacks the aggressor in large numbers and with more stings, it is said that 1000 stings from it are capable of killing an adult man, the ferocity of these bees lies only when defending The hive, but those who go out to the fields to obtain food do not attack humans.
