This does remind me of the many news stories in the 90's warning that killer bees were creeping into the US. I'm sure they have continued migrating north, but I don't hear that in the news anymore.
Yeah they have mixed with regular honey bees and calmed way the hell down.
Now they are the slightly more irritable southern honey bee.
With a serious shortage of honey badgers in North America there was no reason to retain the extreme level of aggression. The ultra aggressive hives have been killed, or requeened by bee keepers.
