TIMES SQUARE — About 25,000 bees were spotted in Times Square on Tuesday, police said.

An officer from the NYPD’s Bee unit “gently removed” the bees and took them to a safe location.

This isn’t the first time a bee swarm has needed to be safely suctioned up by police in Times Square.

In 2018, a swarm of bees settled on a hot dog cart.
