AYER (CBS) – Andrew Kularski is a sergeant in the Ayer Police Department and also a bee enthusiast. On Wednesday, Kularski had the chance to utilize his skills in both fields.
Kularski was driving on Central Ave. and noticed a large, dark-colored blob flying in the area. Because he raises bees as a hobby, Kularski recognized it as a swarm of honeybees.READ MORE: 16-Year-Old Bicyclist Hit And Killed By Pickup Truck In Ipswich

Kularski found out a contractor who was doing work had just been stung, and sprayed the area to get rid of the bees. That caused the bees to swarm another section of the roof.
The sergeant called Ayer Town Manager Robert Pontbriand, who is also a beekeeper. Pontbriand and retired Ayer firefighter Rick Ressijac came to the building to help lure the swarm into a hive in order to be relocated.MORE NEWS: I-Team: State Police Cadaver Dogs Search For Source Of Mysterious Saugus Fly Infestation
Police urged residents to reach out to the Middlesex County Beekeepers Association, Worcester Country Beekeepers Association or local police if they come across a large swarm so the bees can be removed with being harmed.
