In 1956 a Brazilian scientist imported some spec ial bees into Brazil from Africa. The African bees were the same  size as ordinary bees. But they were much stronger and more dangerous. A sting from one of these bee s can kill a  man of even a buffalo very quickly. The  scientist  imported  the  bees  because  he wanted  to  breed  a  new  type  of  bees  using  the  African  bees  and  ordinary European  bees.  He  wanted  to  combine  the  strength  of  the  African  bee  with  the  safety  of     th e European  bee. Unfortunately, in 1957, 26 queen bees escaped and began to breed in the jungl es of Brazil. They spread very  quickly and since that time they have been moving slowly north - wards, covering 300 to 400 kilometers a year. Over  200 people have died after being stung by the killer bees, and thousands of animals have also died.  By March 1 978  the  killer  bees  had  reached Venezuela  and  in  1980  they  arrived in  Panama.  If  they  continue  to move  a t  the  same  speed will reach the USA in 1988. Today  scientists  from  many  different  countries  are  trying  to  find  ways  of  stopping  the  killer  bees.  But  if  they  cannot  be  stopped,  the  Americans,  like  the Brazilians,  will have  to  learn  how  to live with  a  new  a  v ery  dangerous  visitor.
