Quick Reference

Apis mellifera scutellata, a race of bees, originally from South Africa, that was accidentally introduced into Brazil in 1957 and has spread as far as the southern United States. African bees are poor honey producers and tend to sting much more often than European bees. Because of daily differences in flight times of African queens and European drones, hybridization is rare. See Apis mellifera.
