All wild and domesticated bees throughout the West are presumed to be hybrids of European and African bees.
Their blended genetics make all bees less tolerant of disturbance and more likely to sting a suspected threat--a dog, a child or someone gardening.
NOTE: The Greater Los Angeles Vector Control District does not provide a bee removal service.
