Killer Bees are Coming!

Are you afraid of a bee sting?

You should be if you live in the southern areas of the United States! Africanized Honeybees, commonly known as Killer Bees, were discovered in Hidalgo, Texas, in 1990. The bees are now found in most of Texas, Nevada, New Mexico, Arizona and Southern California. Scientists say that while the Africanized bees are no more venomous than regular North American honeybees, they become agitated much more easily and stay angry longer, sometimes repeatedly stinging their victims for an entire day! More than 1,000 people have died as a result of vicious killer bee attacks.
