Africanized Bee

A hive of Africanized honey bees, also called “killer bees,” was recently discovered in Charleston County. It is the first time since 2001 that Africanized bees have been found in South Carolina. In 2001, a colony of Africanized honey bees was found on the wing of an airplane and was quickly destroyed. These two cases differ, in that the 2001 case involved wild bees, whereas the Charleston County case involved a managed hive.
