bees, honey and other sticky subjects

Tuesday, September 21, 2004


Africanized bees have now reached a new most northerly point in the USA -- Tipton, Oklahoma. The bees were found by workmen chopping down a tree and DNA tests by USDA confirmed that they were Africanized bees.
“We all ran different directions to the vehicles, and they followed us. There were just so many of them,” said Jeff Marshall, a city worker who was stung between 35 and 40 times.
The first reported point of entry of Africanized bees was Texas in 1990. Since then they have also been detected in New Mexico, California, Nevada and Arizona.
