Are there really "killer" bees?

   The so-called "killer" bees are just very good at protecting themselves when bothered. They are the descendants of bees brought from Africa to South America as part of an effort to develop a stronger breed of honeybee. But before a breed could be developed, 26 queen bees escaped from the research hives.
   The sting of the Africanized "killer" bee is no different from that of any other honeybee. However, the Africanized bees are quicker to attack and more of them will join in an attack. For the bees to actually kill anything, a mass stinging involving hundreds of bees would have to take place.
