Africanized “Killer” Bees
(Length: 3/8″ – 1/2″) These bees look nearly identical to the well-known European honeybee, with a yellowish brown abdomen and black bands. They nest in hollow trees, sheds, porches, crawl spaces, utility meters, BBQ grills and even trash cans and other outdoor containers. They are very aggressive and attack in swarms to any disturbance around their nest. Their sting is no more painful than the European honeybee but because they attack in swarms, their attack can cause a serious reaction and may be fatal.
