Pest Database - Africanized “Killer” Bees Africanized "killer" bees look so much like a regular honeybee that the only way to tell the two apart is by measuring their bodies. Africanized bees have different wing measurements than honeybees.   Habits These bees defend their colony and attack when threatened. Habitat Africanized bees have small colonies, so they can build nests in unique places. They have been known to live in tires, crates, boxes, and empty cars. Threats Their venom is no more dangerous than regular honeybees-they just tend to attack in greater numbers, which causes more danger to humans. Prevention Because of the aggressive nature of these pests and the enormity of their nests, a pest control professional or beekeeper must address an infestation. If you are chased by Africanized honeybees, run in a zig zag pattern and seek shelter in a house or car.
