Times Square bees enjoying their new home

TIMES SQUARE, Manhattan (WABC) -- There is an update on the thousands of bees that were a buzz around a hot dog cart in Times Square.

The beekeeper tweeted a picture Sunday, saying since the bees love New York City street meat, their new home is decorated with a mini authentic Sabrett umbrella.

Maybe it was the hot dogs, maybe it was the yellow umbrella that attracted them.

The busy bees had tried to set up a hive last week on Broadway and 43rd Street.

The NYPD's beekeeper came in and humanely removed them from the scene.
