About 20,000 bees have taken up residence in the quarantined office of the software company Invoca
The presence of such a huge population of bees in the office, whose employees were transferred to remote work mode, was only possible in January 2021. This is reported by Inc.
The company’s three-story office is located in Santa Barbara, California. Employees left it in March of last year, almost since the start of the epidemic in the U.S.
Company manager Susan Arango visited the office in April to check if everything was okay, but when she found dead bees on the floor, she thought the insects had accidentally flown in.
Later, however, Arango also found dead bees during her visits to the office. As a result, the woman had to contact Super Bee Rescue and Removal, a company that relocates insects to their natural habitat.
In particular, the specialists found a bee nest on the outside of the building, which contained more than 40 liters of honey, wax and pollen.
It turned out that the bees were able to get into the office thanks to a hole in the wall and had spent at least six months inside.
