June 18 (UPI) -- A gathering of nearly 20,000 bees swarmed over a Times Square surveillance camera on Sunday, the New York City Police Department announced.

Police responded to the bees located at 42nd Street and Broadway and quickly removed them before they were sent to a safe location, ABC 7 reported.


There was no reports of anyone getting stung, with the NYPD stating that no bee was left behind.

It remains unknown how or why the bees made their way over to Times Square and the camera.

Recently, 70,000 to 80,000 bees were removed from a 76-year-old woman's home in Houston who has had issues with the insects periodically over the 40 years that she's lived in the house.
