NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — There was a lot of buzz aboard Battleship Wisconsin at Nauticus on Wednesday…but not like you would think. 

A swarm of bees was spotted on the aft brow of the deck by a group of visitors — the South Hampton Roads Museums Forum (SHRMF) — during the Battleship’s open hours. 

The group posted to their Facebook about the encounter and said Nauticus staff quickly responded and closed off the area, but not before the group captured some photos of the swarm. 

A licensed beekeeper safely removed the bees and relocate them, according to Nauticus.
