And the bees have taken notice.

locations in Arizona have noticed bees swarming around Dutch Bros drive-thru lanes across the Phoenix metro area. The major attraction for the bees - Coffee syrup.

These Dutch Bros caffeinated liquid delights rely on the sweet, artificially flavored corn syrup. The open windows of drive-thru coffee hutches give bees easy access, and what follows sounds a lot like insect mayhem.
