According to a social media post by Michelle Vilness, the truck’s owner was selling furnaces at the time inside the Costco at 225 Market Dr.

A beekeeper was quickly called to remove the insects that appeared to have taken residence on the vehicle.

The images were shared more than 800 times on Facebook as of Tuesday morning.
