Beehive found in parking lot near drugstore

WELLINGTON, Fla. - If you're wondering what all the buzz is about in Wellington, just look up.

Sitting in a tree near the Walgreens parking lot on Forest Hill Boulevard is a beehive about 3-feet long.

Covering that hive are thousands of bees,  turning the tree into their own personal bee farm.

"I've never seen something like this before," says shopper Steven Marrone. "Up north we haven't had any."

Sabrina Kelly, who was out for an evening run, also was amazed by the sight.

"I think it's pretty cool," she says. "I love local honey, so I like to see things like that."

Passers-by know there's nothing sweet about that sting, however.

Marrone says he's only been stung by one bee, at most.

"That?" he says looking over to the tree. "I don't know. I would probably double in size."  

The pharmacy chain also realizing the danger.

Walgreens employees putting up signs warning shoppers to stay away.

"If they just stay there, fine," Kelly says. "If they try to attack us while running by...I don't know. "That'll make me run faster."

The nearby mall at Wellington Green telling us it's on Walgreens property, so Walgreens is responsible for it.

Employees at Walgreens tell us that process should get underway Friday.

"Good luck to the guy who does that," Marrone says. "But it would be fun to watch."
