Swarm of bees take over fire hydrant

CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -

A swarm of bees took over part of a mall this afternoon.

Outside of Yonkers at College Square Mall in Cedar Falls, a big swarm of bees took over a fire hydrant. 

A local beekeeper says it's not too surprising. 

"This time of year...starts about the first of June to the middle of August...they swarm," said Bill Jordan, Jordan's Nursery. "They build up enough honey in their hive, so they start a new hive." 

Jordan also wants to remind people to always call a beekeeper if you see something like this. That way, they can take the hive to a safer place.
