Alternative honey bee Africanization models for Mexico

Alternative honey bee Africanization models for Mexico

Bee World 78(4): 165-170

Africanization of a commercial honey bee (Apis mellifera) population in the area of Xcocmil in Yucatan, Mexico, was studied in 1995. Most of the 21 colonies (86%) were not aggressive, but the others readily attacked anyone within 2-3 m of the hive. Foragers from these colonies, however, were not noticeably more aggressive than bees of European races during visits to experimental flower patches.
