    Default Killer Bee Honey?!?!?

    Killer Bee Honey?!?!?

    Science channel reports commercially available killer bee honey. A $3M biz
    in Arizona.

    Honey is honey I suppose.

    Ever had? I'm not certain I would buy any.

    Not quite true. The stingless bees in Mexico
    are much less discriminating in what they gather.
    I wouldn't eat that honey.

    I haven't tried it, but I expect it would be
    just like regular honey. The African queens
    were originally imported to Argentina as part
    of a breeding experiment to improve regular
    bees. The Africanized bees have much larger
    capacity for collecting nectar, so they're
    more productive. They can be handled by
    beekeepers, though it's tricky. When a
    colony is disturbed, they often will kill
    their queen (I don't know why), which can
    interrupt production.
