On March 28th, 2021, in La Cruces, New Mexico about 15,000 bees were found in a man’s car while he was going grocery shopping and left his car window opened. He was only there for a while then came back to his car to find tons of bees and called 911.  

The bees came because normally in spring bees take shelter until they can find a permanent home. Jesse Johnson, a firefighter and a paramedic whose hobby is beekeeping, came and took actionMr.  Johnson safely removed the bees and took them to his property.
