THE BRONX - Residents in Morrisania say they are breathing easier Wednesday after the NYPD dismantled a swarm of bees in the area.

Officials say tens of thousands of bees made the parking lot of the Nehemiah Condominiums their home.

A team called to the swarm quickly determined it could be a hazard and dispatched a beekeeper to get rid of the bees.

The beekeeper sprayed sugar water to keep them in a tight cluster while he suctioned them into a box.

The beekeeper says Mother's Day marked the beginning of swarming season. He says he will take the box of bees upstate, where he will release them into a hive.
