    Default what is killer bee honey like compared to store bought honey?

    I know the Killer bees are beyond dangerous to keep as they earned their name, but is their honey which requires you to risk your life is it worth the danger to obtain?


    and what is the quality of flavor between Wild Killer bee honey and Killer bees that are kept?

    What are killer bees? Media hype, nothing more. Bees with Africanized ancestry make honey just like bees with out. No difference. Please stop the fear mongering.

    "Killer bees" are Apis mellifera same and the honey tastes like honey from Apis mellifera. Meaning there is no difference based on their genetics.

    Just read this blog.
    http://musingsonbeekeeping.blogspot....blog-page.html

    The guy is beekeeping the "killer bees" as we speak.
    All is well.
    Honey tastes the same.
    In fact, the real Russian bees (those black AMMs, not the multi-race mongrels from Russian Far East) can be just as mean as the so called "killer bees" - exact same honey and largely depends on the local floral sources.

    Is this true? All this time I thought killer bees don't make honey as regular bees??? But they say killer bees attack you when you approach them. I have watched lots of documentary shows where someone got killed because of killer bees.

    "Killer Bees" are media hype. Africanized bees are honey bees, they make honey like other honey bees, sometimes they make a lot, most times they do not. Are they more defensive than some European honey bees? yes they are. But, they are just that, defensive. Like all honey bees, they only sting to defend their home. Have people and animals been killed by them? sure, but only because they disturbed the colony. I have picked up dead dogs and removed bees from homes where the owner was killed, every time, the person or animal was at fault. Not once was the attack unprovoked.

    Please stop the fear mongering by referring to them as "killer bees".

    Sure. Like me sitting on my roof with an M-60 and picking off cars passing by on the road and claiming it was 'defensive' because they were 'disturbing' me.
