A hive of thousands of active bees was found next to the door of the polling place at Grace Community Church of the Nazarene in Placentia, according to Orange County Registrar Neal Kelley.
Poll workers redirected voters around to a back door while an exterminator was called.
Shortly afterward, Kelley’s office sent an update via Twitter:
"Pest control just showed up in Placentia and removed the entire swarm and hive. The attack of the killer bees at the poll site is over!"
Kelley said in an interview that the insects were not "killer bees" and that the term was just used in the Twitter post for humor.
