According to bee experts, if you are ever under attack by a swarm of bees their expert advice is to run away as fast as you can. Their sting is no more potent than that of other honey bees.

Africanized bees appear similar to other honey bees and they also pollinate plants.

However, their nesting habits and, most importantly, their temperament, have earned them a bad reputation.

"They are very aggressive and they will sting in great numbers", Nancy Troyano, an entomologist with Western Exterminator, told the newspaper. That's after an incident occurred about 60 years ago in Brazil where a beekeeper accidentally released 26 Tanzanian queen bees and their swarms into the wild.

After the attack in Southern California, first responders closed several blocks nearby, hoping to prevent anyone else from becoming an unwitting victim. Experts warn that anyone who sees bees congregating for a period of time in a particular area should call a bee company to get it checked out.
