KKCO is reporting killer bees have been discovered in Palisade. A Palisade fruit grower noticed a hive was being overly aggressive and brought it into the Tri River Area Extension office. It was shipped out for testing and the office received a positive test result of Africanized Bees. Killer bee stings are akin to European honey bee stings, but the bees are more aggressive and swarm in large numbers. The bees also look identical to other honey bees and can only be distinguished through testing.
