Are Africanized honey bees an invasive species?

    Good question, sparks.  Yes, Africinized honey bees are an invasive species.  In 1957, some scientists in Brazil were studying these bees in hopes of breeding a bee that suited their environment better, but some of the bees got out.  They spread and flourished, and have now become quite the invasive species, earning the nickname “killer bees.”  Because of their invasive nature, they have been monitored heavily to see how much they spread.

    Hope this helps!

    African honey bees are the most invasive of all bees because they need to protect their colony and honey.
