Honey bees are not likely to sting when foraging for nectar and pollen in the backyard.
Honey bees are not likely to sting when swarming. (looking for a new home)
Honey bees are most docile when carrying out their daily chores.
Honey bees are most likely to sting when their home, the hive, is threatened or they are accidentally crushed.
Honey bees swarm, moving in large numbers to establish new hives, in spring and fall and are less likely to be aggressive in those seasons.
Honey bees sting to protect their hive but each bee can sting only once, and then it dies.
In 1957, honey bees (Apis mellifera scutellata) were imported from Africa to Brazil.
African bees escaped and became feral. (wild)
As feral African bees mated with EHBs, they produced a hybrid called an “Africanized honey bee.” (AHB)
AHBs look like European bees to the eye.
They are, on average, slightly smaller than EHBs, but can only be separated by molecular techniques or morphometric computer analysis.
Since 1990, only eight fatalities in the US have been caused by honeybees, as compared to 78 killed by dogs.
The chances of being killed by honey bees are less than the chances of being struck by lightning.
