What is an "Africanized bee"?

An Africanized bee, also known as the "killer bee," is a hybrid species resulting from the interbreeding of European honeybees and African honeybees. They are known for their aggressive behavior and tendency to defend their hives more vigorously than other honeybee species. Africanized bees have spread to various regions, including parts of the Americas, and their presence has raised concerns due to their potential impact on native bee populations and human safety.
