BEE on the Lookout


On the afternoon of June 18, citizens were forced to evacuate at the sight of thousands of bees swarming in the center of Daegu.

According to the Daegu Firefighters Headquarters, at around 3 pm there were reports that swarms of bees were flying near the sidewalk at the old Korean-Japanese theatre located in Jung-gu.


119 responders were assisted by a beekeeping expert, who helped trap the bees in boxes and then incinerated them. The Jung-gu public health center was able to deal with the bees within two hours.

An official at a beekeeping association said, “There have been many cases of bees traveling near Daegu or even within the city. Sometimes the bees are even traveling with the queen.”
