An auction is underway for the honeybees rescued from the top of the bell tower at Community Baptist Church in Cutchogue.
Thousands of bees were safely removed by beekeeper Ken Robbins, who says there's a lot of interest from people who want to help the bee population bounce back.
"They know that we really need to help them out," says Robbins. "They're like 'yeah use my property, I have a lot of flowers, gardens and everything.' Just this past week I put like six hives in people's yards."
The highest bid will be announced on Friday. Then buyers will have a chance to bid again, with the winner set to be announced Saturday.
The bees will be delivered to the highest bidder.
