In our region, the Bee that causes the most concern is an Africanized Honey Bee. However, these Bees are not native to Arizona. Africanized Honey Bees migrated through South and Central America into the Tucson region in 1991. Characteristics of this species include assertive mating habits, producing more honey, frequent swarming, and most importantly an aggressive defense of their colony. These characteristics have resulted in Africanized Honey Bees becoming the most dominate species of Bees in this region. Southern Arizona’s climate and landscape closely resembles Africa making Tucson a permanent home for Africanized Honey Bees.
Africanized Honey Bees could be referred to as “super Bees”. They can produce honey very quickly and in high temperatures. Colonies can break off and swarm several times in one year. These Bees often nest in areas close to the ground. They are considered to be very dangerous and there are several deaths each year associated with them. Once you are stung by an Africanized Bee, it put out an attack pheromone to the rest of the colony. Almost immediately the other Bees of this colony will attack in great numbers and not stop.
To eliminate an infestation of Bees, you should contact a local pest control professional as soon as possible. Treating a Bee problem without the proper equipment can result in serious injury or even cause fatality.
