European Honey Bee Infestation

How Serious Are European Honey Bee Infestations?

European honey bees, as well as most other pollinators do not attack unless provoked. The problem is that Africanized honey bee colonies tend to be much more sensitive to provocation including vibrations and sounds and when threatened send out attack signals to other bees whose increased speed and aggression can account for more stings per victim. With ten times more stings reported in Africanized bee stinging incidents, the risk of fatality is higher in sensitive humans and animals.

When feral European honey bees build nests and hives too close to humans, pets and livestock, they create anxiety for urban homeowners, as well as farm and ranch owners.

Recently, farmers and ranchers in Arizona, who have for years enjoyed the benefits of feral European honey bee colonies for optimal crop yields, began to complain that honey bees were attacking people, livestock and pets, leading honey bee experts to conclude that the majority of feral European honey bee colonies in the Southwestern United States had become Africanized.

With this warning in mind, homeowners are advised to contact a trusted pest control professional, such as your local Truly Nolen location, when honey bees build nests in inconvenient places, such as the eaves of your house, on your porch and in wall voids inside your home. Because of the potential dangers Africanized honey bee colonies pose to people and pets, homeowners are advised to watch for unusual behavior, such as bees intentionally bumping into people and pets as warnings before attacking.
