Africanized "killer" bees looks so much like regular honeybees that
the only way to tell the two apart is by measuring their bodies. A
dangerous stinging insect, Africanized bees have been known to
chase people for more than a quarter of a mile once they get
excited and aggressive.
These bees defend their colony and attack when threatened.
Africanized bees have small colonies, so they can build nests in
unique places. They have been known to live in tires, crates,
boxes, and empty cars.
Africanized killer bee venom is no more dangerous than regular
honeybees-they just tend to attack in greater numbers, which causes
more danger to humans.
