I am not 100 percent sure, but there sure were a lot of bees on this hot dog stand in Times Square.

The bee puns kept flying in from the NYPD, with the Time Square precinct emphasizing that this wasn't the first time that a bee swarm invaded the area.

The honeybees descended on a food cart umbrella near the corner of 43rd Street and Broadway around 2 p.m. NYPD beekeepers - yes, they're a real thing - responded to the scene to vacuum and contain the critters in a humane fashion.

"People were just swatting in front of their faces", Sheldo said.

He wore protective gear as he slowly sucked the bees into a vacuum.

The footage was taken in the Times Square neighborhood of the borough of Manhattan. "We like to keep the families together".

Mason said no one was hurt by the group of bees, who were apparently quite a chilled-out bunch.

"Look at all those darn bees!"

Eventually, a beekeeper did arrive on scene to relocate the bees.

According to The Honeybee Conservancy, there are a number of bees native to the city including mason bees and leafcutter bees.

Faith Beech, 31, said: "This is absolutely insane!"

Pedestrians could be seen swatting at the bees as they tried to avoid getting stung.

"You can't go against nature", he said.
