Africanized Honey Bees

Most of the bees in Maricopa County are classified as Africanized honey bees. These bees are similar to European honey bees, but much more aggressive. They are extremely vicious in defending their hive or colony. Africanized honey bees swarm several times during the year, moving their colony with them.

How to Evade a Bee Attack

A single Africanized honey bee attack can last several days. If you find yourself under attack by these vicious insects, cover your head, and run to the nearest place that will separate you from the bees. A vehicle or home will work, but avoid water. If you choose a vehicle to escape these stinging creatures, close all outside vents and turn on the air conditioning. The cool air will calm the bees.

Painful Symptoms of a Bee Sting

The severity of a reaction to a bee sting can vary for each individual. A typical reaction will result in pain, swelling, and redness around the sting site. Some individuals have severe allergic reactions to bee stings, which may require immediate medical attention. This is called “anaphylaxis” and may include one or more of the following symptoms.

This type of reaction can occur within minutes after the sting and may be life-threatening. Those who have experienced this type of reaction to a bee sting have a high chance of a similar reaction if stung again. If you have been prescribed medication to treat these severe allergies, always carry it with you, whenever you are outdoors.

  • Hives, itching, or swelling in areas other than the sting site
  • Tightness in chest
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Hoarse voice or swollen tongue
