Bee-Ware of the Africanized Bee
You know the scene.
You walk out of your house…you see one or two bees lingering near the door.
You slowly back up into the safety of your home. And then…you laugh at yourself. “A bee” — you think, “I was scared of a little bee.”
And with your newfound confidence, you step out of your house, walk down your drive, and continue on with your day.
While one to two bees may not be something to be too worried about, do not underestimate the power of the Africanized Killer Bee Colony. Barely distinguishable from the every honey bee, the Africanized Bee is incredibly aggressive and can be very dangerous if provoked.
The danger they present is twofold:
Their nests/hives can be difficult to find or see in entirety — bee-ware of holes in the ground.
They attack in swarms and are very sensitive to disturbances near their home.
If you believe you may have even a small bee infestation, it is always best to call a professional to have the situation evaluated before you risk a trip to the E.R. for multiple bee stings. At ASPM, our team members are specially trained and have specific equipment to properly deal with Africanized Bees.
