Bees swarm Zagreb city square

Croatian Times
Thousands of bees swarmed onto Zagreb's central square Trg Bana Jelacica yesterday, targeting flowerpots hanging on electric poles.

Ice-cream vendor Augustin Djakovic first reacted to the potential danger, alerting the emergency who summoned the beekeeper service.

Damir Rogulja, the coordinator of Zagreb beekeepers service, explained that for bees, this is their ‘time for love’. "They are procreating and looking for habitat," he said.

He added that this was their 10th intervention that day. "This year we have had 50 interventions so far, and last year 172.

"Three people died last year because a bee stung them," he added.

The first time I hear for this and I live in Zagreb :oops: :lol:
And I knew something would happen with those stupid flowerpots hanging on electric poles. I hope they'll remove it now, that's just annoying, I always have a feeling that could fall on my head :lol:
And now bees are the problem :lol:
