Killer Bees's and Honey Bees in Arizona

You've probably heard the term "killer bee", but what does that really mean? African honey bees were introduced to South America in the late 50s in an attempt to increase honey production. This resulted in a hybrid species of honey bee called the Africanized honey bee. Over the last several decades, this new species of bee has spread to the southwestern United States and rapidly replaced the areas native bee populations. Its estimated that over 95% of honey bees in Arizona are Africanized. Although their sting isn't any more dangerous than the western honey bee's, it is their highly aggressive nature that has earned them the nickname "Killer bees".

Protect your home from Bees

There is no way to prevent a swarm of bees from moving into your backyard or landing on your home. However, calking cracks and other voids around your structure and screening any vents or gaps, can prevent them from getting inside your structure. Bees are attracted to dark secure places, as these make perfect spots to build a new hive.
