June 27 (UPI) -- The New York Police Department said its beekeepers division was dispatched to a midtown Manhattan eatery over the weekend to remove 2,000 bees.

"The [bees] will now be relocated to an area where their pollenating skills will be put to good use," the official NYPD Twitter feed said Sunday.


Photos show the bees clustered at the corner of the roof of a Times Square restaurant's outdoor seating area.

Last month, the NYPD beekeepers removed 8,000 honeybees from 3 World Trade Center in downtown Manhattan and relocated them without incident to an apple orchard.
