They can stop and swarm like this in 3-6 minutes.
I suppose they are Africanized bees, since the AZ bee
website says that all the honey bees have been taken over by them now.
My pest control people told me they were most likely just 'pollinators'...
passing through to rest the queen on their journey elsewhere.
They are usually not aggressive at this time, but I kept my distance anyway...
The wind was blowing 25-30 mph yesterday.
They were "breaking off" in clumps..
then quickly flying back to hang on again.
all that was left was this:
I "stole" the honeycomb along with it's pheromones... hoping it will keep them from coming back so close to the house.
