A man living in Queens was keeping about 3 million bees in 45 hives in his driveway. Authorities in New York City raided the home and removed the hives. “There were more bees in this driveway than there are people in Queens,” Andrew Cote of the New York City Beekeeper’s Association, stated. He also said he did not know the fate of the bees he just assisted in their removal. I can tell you what I think their fate should be. They kill ever last one of those flying little demons. Anyone who has seen my previous post on bees and wasps will understand my feelings on this.
The owner was quoted as saying “I keep the bees like a dog or a pet” WTF? They are demon spawn not a dog or a pet. Are you a moron? Did you get stung one too many times and your brain swell?
The stacks of hives were discovered by a real estate agent who was inspecting the house as the owner was putting it up for sale. Neighbors said they were tired of the buzz because of insects and the bees have at times attacked in swarms. Of course they have, they are flying demons, that’s what they do.
Beekeeping is legal in the city, however they are supposed to be registered with the Health Department. Failure to register is punishable by a fine of up to $2,000 per hive. The owner is looking at a $90,0000 penalty.
