Africanized honey bee definition and meaning

What is an "Africanized honey bee"?

An Africanized honey bee is a hybrid bee species that originated from the interbreeding of European honeybees and African honeybees. They are known for their aggressive behavior and defensive nature, often responding to perceived threats with a rapid and large-scale attack. Although they have adapted well to warmer climates, their presence can pose challenges to beekeepers and communities due to their increased aggressiveness.
