Town of West Bend, WI – It was September 2020 when a Town of West Bend couple awaited the start of the Kentucky Derby…. and then a swarm of bees arrived.
“There was a swarm of bees that landed in the yard,” said Lori. “It was like locusts. It is insane, they were everywhere.”
Lori texted this message: Ok… so this happened today….. about noon a locust-like swarm invaded the southeast side of our yard. It was insane, not knowing what it was! Well, it turned out to be a bee swarm…they decided to make a temporary home in our tree by the pool.
A video provided by the homeowner shows a sunny afternoon at a home off 18th Avenue and while it is difficult to see … trust her, it’s bees. A lot of bees.
“They started going away but 10 minutes later I see them in the tree,” she said.
The bees have enveloped a tree branch. “They are hanging on each other.”
Early word is the queen bee is in the middle of the cake of bees.

Neighbors flocked to see the swarm of bees. “I told them $2 a picture,” said Lori. “What else can happen in 2020? These are the Rona bees.”
