St. Cloud Fla., Killer Bee swarm on trailer

St. Cloud Bee Swarm
Here is a late summer honey bee swarm on a trailer in St. Cloud, FL. This is almost certainly an Africanized Honey Bee swarm, aka Killer Bee. We are encountering many killer bees now in St. Cloud and Kissimmee, so one should be very careful when approaching bees, as we have had several seemingly docile swarms attack us full-on this year, when approached.

Please do not spray insecticides, bug spray, kerosene, or streams of water, as this can provoke an attack from the swarm.
