Many of the bees in Panama are Africanized. Thanks to the brilliance of a Brazilian science project and Panama being a narrow country and gateway to North America, these traveling mobs show up, build a temporary nest on their queen out in the open, and when they are done they peel away in just a few seconds and move on. We watched the entire process at the cabin last year, and it’s pretty amazing. Scary, but you just have to watch. I was building on the chicken coop yesterday and my neighbor, Tito showed up and pointed just behind me about 5 feet and said “Africanos”. They were not there yesterday, but I need to be more aware of my surroundings. Fascinating, but nasty.
