However, if they feel threatened, the bees will attack in large numbers. In Texas, they have caused 11 deaths in 15 years.
I'm thinking this is a bit of sensationalized journalism.
I find it really hard to believe that all 11 cases were confirmed
attacks from African bees.
Many people are severly allergic to honey bee stings in general
and will die from one or two stings,
regardless of the type of bee that stings them!
It is also a proven fact that EHB venom is more potent than AHB venom!
