Honey Bees have hairy, yellow and black striped abdomens. The female workers have small sacs attached to them called corbicula or “pollen baskets”, to carry pollen.
Wild nests are typically found inside hollow trees and other semi-hidden spaces. In some cases a colony will decide to nest inside an attic, a crawl space, or a wall void in a home. Honey Bees are commonly seen in flowering gardens.
I went with the ID of American Honey Bee due to this regions data and they didn't appear to be aggesive to be considered Africanized. Sorry the picture isnt detailed enough to get a more positive ID.
