NYPD removes 10k from NYC recycling receptacle

An NYPD beekeeper removed about 10,000 bees that flew into a Times Square recycling receptacle on Tuesday — two weeks after a larger swarm visited the same area.

The bees were captured by Officer Darren Mays at about 2 p.m. outside of 3 Times Square, according to the NYPD.

Photos posted to the department’s Twitter page shows some of the insects even made their way into a Pepsi can.

On July 6, Officer Mays was also dispatched to the Crossroads of the World to remove roughly 25,000 bees, police said.

The first swarm was subsequently driven up to and released in the Hudson Valley, according to a Twitter post from the NYPD beekeepers.

NYPD beekeepers removed 10,000 bees that had made their home in recycling bin in Times Square on July 20, 2021.
