Bee venom facts

-  The enzymes of bee venom are 30 times more active than snake venom.

-  Africanized bees are smaller than European bees; they respond faster and produce 9 times more stings at the same time and pursue intruders up to 460 meters with willingness to sting.
-  At the Thirty Years War (1618-1648) fought primarily in what is now
Germany- and at various points involved most countries in Europe-
beehives were used to ambush the enemy lines making the beehives to
fall all over and angry bees sharply stung horses and horsemen.
