DL is just testing a new cabin class: BBE, aka Basic Basic Economy. Passengers are very tightly packed with no seat assignments and no access to FC or coach lavatories. Also not even F&B for purchase.

Googled DElta flight delayed by bees and seems to have happened back in 2012 as well on a PIT-LGA flight:

It's always good to have evidence of healthy bees.

I’ve had a problem with a bee swarm at my home and the beekeeper showed up with a device called a Bee Vac that safely vacuums the bees so that they can be relocated. A Shop Vac, being too powerful, will destroy their wings and kill them.

There are people for whom a bee sting is a very unhealthy and even life threatening event. I don't think such individuals would be pleased to see evidence of so many healthy bees.
