He suspects that there's a wild honeybee colony somewhere on airport property. They are a protected species, meaning you can't kill them. They must be moved.
"Specifically, the airport authority have gone through great lengths to make sure that honeybees receive special attention."


In contrast, Logan Airport works hard to keep insect life off airport property. Plantings are designed not to attract insects because insects attract birds and birds attract larger birds and next thing you know there's an owl in the engine and the outbound plane is crashing into Boston Harbor instead of the World Trade Center.

I got to watch a Snowy Owl release a few months ago. They take captured owls from the airport up to Plum Island.

CSB: I was at the In-N-Out on Sepulveda watching planes land on 24R at LAX when there looked like a puff of smoke wafting through the sky about 100 feet from me and my family. Same deal, entire colony of bees moving along with a queen. I've never seen so many people (eating outside) get up and move so fast.

- Very clever, Delta. Luring our bees to your engines and them selling them back to us at an inflated price.
- Bees are on the what now?

Obviously you've never eaten at Weinerschnitzel.

That's the location of the seat on the plane where people who bought tickets through Priceline sit.

This was just a training exercise for the bee air rescue corps:

The Beaze?

I thought that show had potential.

Hopefully, Hollywood is listening because it sounds like a perfect plot for a "B" movie.

I'm sure The Asylum is hard at work even as we speak.

Hollywood already did one called Bee Movie. And it was.

Bees rarely sting when swarming. So I think it was less an "AAAAAAAHHHH!" moment and more an "Aaah, lets protect this colony. Honey bees are disappearing from America" kind of moment.

A swarm of bees? What is it?

Driving up I-280 near Stanford hit a flight migrating over the highway. They sounded like hail as they hit my windshield, leaving a dozen smears mainly of honey but with too much bee guts to be kosher

It's a large group of flying insects, but that's not important right now.

So the bees in the reporter's cupped hands thought she was the queen? I can see that.

The airport should just spend a couple bucks and find the mother colony (or colonies) that is obviously nearby. But hell, why treat the root of the cause when you can just treat the symptoms, it's the American way!

I'm sure that the bees will fly off.
