Dwarf honey bees (Apis florea) were introduced from Oman to Jordan most probably through a cargo ship that docked in the port of Aqaba. First reported in 2007, this species has established in southern Jordan and Israel and is considered there as invasive. The agricultural and conservation sectors in Israel have expressed fears that the bees will spread northwards, potentially competing with local bees for food resources and jeopardizing crop pollination. Pictured here is a worker foraging on a native plant on the outskirts of Eilat.
