An Albuquerque TV station seeking tips on local news stories got a call from a man in 2015 who said his next door neighbor’s bee boxes were a source or annoyance for the surrounding area. The neighbors complained of the constant buzzing and cringed about the danger of being stung by one of the critters.
Apparently desperate for something on a slow news day, the TV station rushed a crew to the scene, whereupon the cameraman was promptly stung by one of the bees.
Point taken, literally. The neighbor with the bees acquiesced and agreed to relocate his bee boxes to a location out in the country.
