30,000 Honeybees Make Home in Times Square

30,000 Honeybees Make Home in Times Square

Honey bees,Times Square

The swarm took over an entire ledge near One Times Square on Tuesday. Andrew Coté of AndrewsHoney.com, a fourth-generation beekeeper removed the bees and it took about about 30 minutes to remove with a vacuum suction. They were moved to a dwindling hive that Coté oversees at Bryant Park through the bee keeper association.

This is the third time this month that a swam has been seen in New York City. Bees covered a van in Midtown on June 2nd. Two weeks ago, they swarmed a downtown building.

According to Coté; the hive they are in is overpopulated and doesn’t have good ventilation. The queen leaves and she takes a third to a half with her so they can start a new colony.  The bees were not interested in humans, only a place to stay.

Coté said bee swarm season started Memorial Day and ends on the Fourth of July.

Swarms usually have been 15,000 and 20,000 bees.
