    We have a "killer bee" species rapidly making its way north, in Texas, that wasn't found in North America at all a few decades ago. I think this change is occurring because of climate change, weather patterns, rising temperatures, etc.
    Killer bees are nothing more than African bees. The honeybee has been around a long time, people loved honey because no access to sugar. They have been cross bred for desired traits and now we have many differant types.
    The Killer bees were African queens in a breeding program in South America, a helper left the cage open and ONE Queen escaped. Her progeny is what you call killer bees.
    They are just very aggressive ( elephants know to stay away)
    They don't build massive hives and don't winter well.
    Not a good bee for beekeepers if you can avoid them.
    If not, dress well.

    Hope that helps.
    Not really...makes me wonder why there are so few successful "right of center" comedians. What's Victoria Jackson up to lately?

    Like I say though, to each his own.

    Mr. Stan,

    And yet, the liberals stereotype is the bitter, angry ranter.

    There's no nativism without the racism. Not of the Trump variety, anyway.
    "Illegal alien" is not an insulting phrase, it's a factual phrase. And it conjures images of Mexicans because they are the worst offenders. No one told you who to envision at reading the phrase...
    There is nothing racist about the mention of illegal aliens, except in the mind of the beholder.

    This stuff grew all the way across the San Joaquin River near Fresno last year, and I mean all the way across where the river is about 100 yards wide. It blocked the river for kayaks and canoes. Still, it's being sold for ponds and fish tanks.

    Habitat[edit]
    Parrot feather is native to the Amazon River in South America, but it can now be found on every continent except Antarctica.[6][7] It is thought that this plant was introduced to North America around the late 1800s. It was first discovered in the United States in the 1890s in Washington D.C.[3] Parrot’s feather typically grows in freshwater streams, ponds, lakes, rivers, and canals that have a high nutrient content. During the 20th century it colonized areas in South Africa, Japan, England, New Zealand, and Australia.[7] As it prefers a warmer climate, it is chiefly found in the southern parts of the United States.[3]
    Looked it up in Wikipedia
