The swarm took over an entire ledge near One Times Square on Tuesday. Andrew Coté of, 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.
