(NEW YORK POST) – Police were called to a humming scene in lower Manhattan on Saturday night when a gang of bees took up residence on the side of a skyscraper.
“There was quite the buzz late last night at 3 World Trade Center as 8,000 honeybees swarmed the side of the building,” the NYPD tweeted on Sunday. “Thankfully, a quick response from @NYPDBees resulted in the safe capture of our flying friends who were relocated without incident to an apple orchard.”

Accompanying photos of the well-pollinated situation show what appears to be a portion of the 80-story structure’s first floor so densely covered in bees that the material beneath isn’t visible.
