Abstract

On this 40th ‘anniversary' of Africanized honey bees in the Americas, David De Jong, a prominent bee researcher who has worked for many years on AHB, gives his personal views and puts the problems faced by beekeepers in Brazil into perspective. Here, he reviews how beekeeping practice has changed as beekeepers have successfully adapted to managing these behaviourally problematic bees.
