Africanized honeybees, a fierce hybrid strain sometimes referred to as "killer bees," appear to have established themselves in the New Orleans area, Agriculture Commissioner Bob Odom says. According to The Associated Press, two swarms have been found around Meraux since January. Odom says it isn't known how the bees arrived; they may have flown in from a ship or barge.
