Abstract

The arrival of Africanized Honey Bees in the United States in the 1990s raised a host of economic and ecological concerns. Agriculture is potentially affected both directly by the reduction in honey production and indirectly by the loss of pollinators. This study examines whether the arrival of this invasive species generated a measurable impact on the production of honey using a measure of change in information. The results provide no reason to believe that Africanized Honey Bee has significantly affected the production of honey in the United States or changed the investment behavior of beekeepers.
