African Killer Bees (also known as Africanized  honey bees) are a hybrid of the western hybrid species produced originally by cross-breeding of the African honey bee, with various European honey bees such as the Italian bee and the Iberian bee. This species was discovered to have spread into the American Northwest in 2011.

Africanized bees are less discriminating in their choice of nests than native bees, utilizing a variety of natural and man-made objects, including hollow trees, walls, porches, sheds, attics, utility boxes, garbage containers and abandoned vehicles. They also tend to swarm more often than other honey bees.
