Killer Bee



 The Killer Bee

          Buzzzzzzz! Time to run; a killer bee is on the loose.  These terrifying creatures have been rising into North America!  Check out these insects so if one tries to attack, your are ready for action!

          Killer bees are very unique.  These dangerous insects can chase a person up to 2 miles.  The queen can get up to 4/5 inches long and the worker can get up to 1/2 inches long.  These bees look like a normal honeybee.  They are even more dangerous than European honeybee!  Honeybees and killer bees are often confused …. so watch out!

          These bees are rising into North America.  The whole state of Arizona is filled.  They live in southern North America, Argentina and Africa.  They were originally from Africa.  And Africa brought them over to South America.  Then they rose into North America.  If you step on a bee, make sure it’s not a killer bee!

          Killer bees eat, sting, and collect pollen for their hive.  In order to survive killer bees eat honey and pollen from the nest.  They also eat nectar, which is also from the nest.  Killer bees sting a person when threatened.  Killer bees have a poisonous stinger.  That’s how they got their nickname “The Killer Bee”.  When you see one, run fast!

          The killer bee goes through a complete metamorphosis.  First comes the egg: an oval like object that is white.  Next comes the larva: a white grub that is about the size of the adult.  Then the pupa: the adult bee in a sack called a cocoon.  Finally the adult bee: a dangerous creature with six legs, a pair of wings and a fully developed body!  With all those changes a bee has to go through, I wouldn’t want to be a killer bee!

          Killer bees are very dangerous creatures.  Next time you take a walk…. WATCH OUT!!!
