The Cincinnati Reds game against the San Francisco Giants on Monday afternoon created quite a buzz when thousands of bees seemingly came out of nowhere and descended on the field delaying the start.

Most of the bees appeared to just be flying around the field area as most fans remained in their seats and players were still in the dugout. However, at one point, fans behind home plate did start to leave the area as bees started swarming the protective netting.

Eventually, most of the bees left the stadium and the game got underway. However, in the second inning, hundreds of bees were seen in one section of seats.

That’s when two brave stadium workers decided to wing it and tried to solve the problem with cardboard boxes and no protection.

Hopefully, they labelled the boxes properly. That would bee a buzzkill if somebody were to open one of those boxes thinking they were just sheets.
