LAWRENCE, Kan. -

The buzz from around 15,000 bees outside the KU natural history museum today has people talking.

The museum says the bees outgrew their hive inside and the colony is "splitting."

That means they will relocate and find a new home. They traveled out of their old hive at the museum through a plastic tube today. 

The museum plans to keep the bees at a new offsite facility where they were transported.

The bee tree and observation hive started again inside the museum in May.
