CAPE CORAL- A bee hive was found on the 3400 block of Santa Barbara Boulevard in Cape Coral today.

It is estimated that there are up to 80-thousand bees residing in the hive.

The bee hive is about 5 feet long sitting in a tree

The City feels it is now a safety issue because the bee hive is in the area of a bus stop and a high traffic area.

The bees will be transported today to a local sanctuary.
