What's it like to keep Africanized bees?
Is it still fun working with bees when they're so aggressive?
Can you cross-breed Africanized bees with European bees to get a more docile bee?
 
In this episode I talk about Africanized bees and how they're different from European honey bees as well as my conversation with Laryssa, a beekeeper in Texas who keeps Africanized bees, teaches beekeeping and does numerous cutouts removing wild hives from people's homes where he doesn't know what the temper of the hive will be until he gets there.
Talk begins at 14:47.
