Statistics & Facts On Africanized Honeybees In The U.S.
Africanized Honeybees are a hybrid bee that was accidentally released by a beekeeper in Brazil during 1957. Since then these bees have spread to North America at a rate of 100-300 miles per year. Although there is a geographical/climate barrier that is suitable for Africanized Honybees to live, this aggressive type of honeybee has affected U.S. states like Texas, Florida, and California.
