Africanized bees

Africanized bee stings can have serious effects on humans. These bees are more aggressive than common European bees and tend to attack in large numbers when they feel threatened. Some of the effects of their bites may include:

Intense pain: Africanized bee stings are usually more painful than those of European bees due to the greater amount of venom injected.

Allergic reactions: As with other bee stings, some people may experience severe allergic reactions, such as swelling, difficulty breathing, generalized hives, and in extreme cases, anaphylaxis.

Multiple bites: Africanized bees tend to attack in large swarms, which can lead to multiple stings on a single person in a short period of time. These repeated stings can increase the severity of the reaction to the venom.
