This was cool! A honey bee swarm landed (alighted) right near the Colorado Rockies Dugout at Coors' Field! In Colorado, wild honey bees are relatively low in numbers (compared to Florida anyway, which is LOADED with wild, African Honey Bees!!), so the right call was made. A beekeeper used a 'bee-vac' to vacuum the honey bees up, and he will either add the bees to an existing hive box of his, or start a new colony. Bravo! Check out the video and cool play by play!
