UNION COUNTY, NJ – The County found themselves in a sticky situation last week when a swarm of honey bees were discovered at a construction dumpster at the County Administration building.

A social media post by the County said a pair of beekeepers from the nonprofit organization Groundwork Elizabeth came to the scene on Friday, and the bees were relocated to the Elmora Public Library, as part of the Urban Agriculture Project.

Pollinators like honeybees and butterflies are important to Union County's environment, helping flower and vegetable gardens flourish.

If you spot a swarm of honeybees, contact Groundwork at 908-289-0262 or elizabethnj@groundworkusa.org.  They will send a team to save the bees.
