Massive swarm of bees invades Yankee Stadium

The Bronx Bombers’ head-to-head against Tampa Bay wasn’t the only buzz at Yankee Stadium Monday afternoon — about 25,000 bees had to be hauled off after they descended on the outfield.

The NYPD’s two-man beekeeping unit had to be called in to remove the swarm after it took up residence near Monument Park.

“I’d like to thank @Yankees for being such a classy organization for calling a beekeeper to come in and safely remove the honeybees and having them relocated. #mlb #Yankees #nypdbees #beekeeping,” reads a message posted to the NYPD squad’s twitter account.

And the “classy” compliment may refer to more than the team’s signature pin stripes — the NYPD beekeepers blasted the San Diego Padres last month for summarily killing a swarm that took up residence near a dugout microphone.

The NYPD’s two-man bee team — which was created to deal with swarms when the Big Apple legalized urban beekeeping in 2010 — often takes home the insects it rescues.
