In brief: Agressive bees
The "killer bees" are a group of bees that are more aggressive then other bees.
Being more aggressive they are feared as they have been known to chase people who have disturbed their nest. I am not sure if they are physically different from other bees.

They are not physically different, and you cannot identify them by sight.... only by their behavior, or genetics. They are very protective and aggressive, and will chase you and sting you en masse. If they are present in your geographic area, beware.
