The Africanized Honey Bee or Killer Bee
The Africanized honey bee (AHB) is a truly remarkable honey bee from a scientific prospective but from a home-owners prospective she is a nuisance.
The AHB will swarm (reproductive units) 10 times more than our traditional European Honey Bee (EHB). This means each person in an AHB area is 10 times more likely to interact with these insects. Most of our interactions with these insects are harmless and all attacks and deaths from AHB could have been prevented.
The AHB is not a killer or a hunter she is only trying to defend her hive, young, and food. If provoked, the AHB will defend her hive with large numbers of bees. Up to 60% of her hive numbers, that can be anywhere from 30,000 to 60,000 bees or more.
The AHB’s habits are very much the same as our EHB. Most people will see these insects flying from flower to flower gathering nectar and pollen. Others may see them coming to pools or ponds for water. Just as with EHB, enjoy these bees as they do their jobs. These situations are harmless and are meant to be enjoyed. Water foragers can be a nuisance if they are in pool areas where people play. Water foragers in the city can most often be tracked back to the source and controlled. Call Bee Master Of Las Vegas, Inc. for help.
The AHB will nest almost any where a cavity is present. We have seen the AHB nest in water or irrigation boxes, tires, block walls, bird houses, outdoor speaker, boats, cars, house attics, old trees, crates, cardboard boxes, storage shed, wood floors, turned over pots, abandoned furniture, and so on. Keeping yards clean and property in good repair will help but not completely eliminate your chance of infestation. The most important thing we can do to protect our property and selves is inspect house and yard once a week. Quick detection and control is the way to BEE SAFE!
