An un-bee-lieveable 10,000 honeybees were rescued from a signpost in Lompoc on Thursday.

The massive swarm was discovered inside a wooden pole with signage warning of a stop sign ahead along eastbound Highway 246, west of V Street. Super Bee Rescue is caring for the bees.

Just for perspective, a typical commercial or backyard Langstroth beehive has 60,000 bees. Don't be amazed tat this swarm that took up residence in a hollow signpost had 10,000.

Why don't they just let them bee? Seems like they like it there.
