Africanized Honeybees were accidentally released in 1957 by a beekeeper in Brazil. These bees have since spread to the United States at a rate of 100-300 miles per year. Although these bees are perceived to be more aggressive, which contributed to their debated alias “a killer” bee, an Africanized honeybee’s venom contains the same potency as the European Honeybee. They are also indistinguishable from one another.
