Pinellas County Bees in Bird Nest Box

One of the interesting African Honey Bee (AHB or "Killer Bee") behaviours we have been documenting, is their preference for voids that are smaller than what European Honey Bees (EHB) would choose to build nests in.

This photo shows honey bees, which are likely AHB, nesting inside a bird nest box.
