Hudson abuzz with bee discovery

Hudson (WQOW) - Folks around Hudson are buzzing about a bee problem in the city Tuesday.

City crews encountered the swarm of about 50,000 honey bees while clearing up storm damage in Hudson's Lakefront Park.

The city was forced to close Dike Road, a popular trail that leads to a beach and boat landing on the St. Croix River. There are no reports of anyone being stung. It's unclear where they came from but officials say the bees typically follow the queen bee.

That's what they're hoping will happen now because they called in a beekeeper set up a hive nearby to try to capture them.
