Big Apple Is Abuzz With Bees
RENEE MONTAGNE, host:
Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne.
The Big Apple is abuzz with bees. New York recently made it legal for residents to keep bees, which has led to swarms of them. This week, police had to divert traffic in Chinatown when 15,000 honey bees descended on it. They've also covered a mailbox in Little Italy and buzzed a fire escape uptown. Swarming bees don't usually sting, so the city advises New Yorkers to do what they always do: ignore the crowds - of bees.
