Due to an accidental release of African honeybees from a Brazilian laboratory in the 1950s, populations of Africanized bees interbred with feral European honeybee colonies. By the 1990s, Africanized bee colonies had been established in the southwestern United States. Bee experts now believe all feral bee colonies in the U.S. have become Africanized.
Nicknamed “killer bees,” Africanized bees attack with force in numbers and pursue perceived threats for longer distances. Because of the danger posed by Africanized bee colonies, Preventive Pest Control advises to keep your distance from swarming bees and hive building activity.
Bee extraction experts will assess the situation and advise you of the best plan of action. Due to the extreme danger to our technician, and the fact the only way to determine if bees are Africanized would be to get attacked, we kill and remove the hive. We are cognizant of the enormous role bees play in our food source, but risking an attack and potential allergic reaction from our clients or co-workers is too large a risk to take. Based on the location of the hive it may be recommended to remove the entire hive.
Some people are allergic to bee stings and may go into anaphylactic shock if stung, that can be fatal. Africanized bees protecting the hive will attack perceived threats in a wide area around the actual hive making unsuspecting neighbors potential targets of the bee’s aggression.
