There's a lot of buzz going on at the Cincinnati Zoo!

The Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Gardens helped rescue more than 50,000 honey bees that were colonizing in a garage attached to an Ohio home for the last 25-years.

Zoo workers safely removed the bees as well as the honeycomb and brood (eggs, larvae, and pupae) using a vacuum and are relocating them to their existing colony on their 650-acre farm where they will help educate visitors on the importance of pollination and bee conservation.

Even better, the Ohio family will finally have their garage back after all this time.
