Africanized Honeybee


Common name : European honeybee, Killer bee

Scientific name : Apis mellifera

Family : Apidae

Native to : Central, North & South America

Interesting fact : The Killer bee (a hybrid of theAfricanized bee) responds to threats, by chasing away its enemy for more than a mile and stinging in large groups.

The Africanized honeybee is only slightly smaller than its European counterpart. Its diet is comprised of pollen and nectar. For their nest, they are not very selective. Anything from hollow trees to walls, old cars and garbage containers will do. They swarm and breed a lot faster than European bees, and are far more resilient.
