The Africanized Honey Bee in the AmericasBook - 1992
Since their introduction into southern Brazil in the 1950s, Africanized - or killer - bees have acquired a reputation among the general public that is straight out of a science fiction movie. As colonies of these feisty bees have gradually moved north, expanding their range into Mexico and, most recently, Texas, lurid reports of their sometimes fatal stinging behaviour and aggressive swarming have commanded media attention and alarmed local communities.
