5 million bees fell off a truck in Burlington

Social media is all abuzz after containers filled with 5 million bees fell off a truck in Burlington. 

Halton Regional Police shared the incident via Twitter just after 7 am on Wednesday morning, along with a photo that showed numerous containers strewn along the side of the road on Guelph Line north of Dundas Street. 

Drivers passing by were advised to keep their windows shut, and pedestrians were urged to steer clear of the area until further notice. 

However, it wasn’t long before local beekeepers had organized on the scene to help with cleanup and corralling the bees. In fact, before 10 am, much of the work to contain the situation had been completed. 

Halton Regional Police then shared an update to say that the majority of the bees had been safely collected, and some crates would be left behind for remaining bees to natural return to. 

“We continue to ask pedestrians avoid the area and that residents do not approach or touch the crates being left behind for the bees,” wrote the Halton Regional Police on Twitter. “They will be collected once the bees have returned.”
