Chico, 'killer bees' as they call them , are just large honey bees. There isnt much difference between them and a regular honey bee, except there larger and more aggressive. But i agree , bees get a bad wrap because, yellow jackets, hornets, and wasps are not bees. There called wasps. There meat eaters. I have been stung by a hornet, but for some reason yellow jackets get me. It starts out like a regular sting, hurts , itches. But then i will get muscle pain in that area for months. I only get that with yellow jackets.
I used to love it when i was working at a greenhouse, watering walking down flower bays with hundreds of honey bees going about there business on the flowers, they didnt care i was there. I miss that.
