DANVILLE, Ky. (AP) — After setting things abuzz by trapping customers in a store, a hive of honeybees has been safely removed from downtown Danville in central Kentucky.

Fire Chief Woody Ball told The Advocate-Messenger that emergency crews were called Monday because customers were afraid to leave the store.

He says first responders quickly realized they would need help, so they called Gary and Joyce Taylor, who live in nearby Perryville and have experience in bee removal.

The newspaper reports the Taylors arrived to find more than a million honeybees swarming in the area.

Fire crews shut down part of the road while the Taylors worked to safely collect the insects.

Although the situation had the potential to carry a sting, Ball says there were no injuries to people or bees.
