Bees force closure of rest stop in Searchlight

Posted at 5:26 PM, Aug 24, 2017

An unusually high number of bees has resulted in the closure of a rest stop near Searchlight.

It is one of the only rest stops between Las Vegas and Laughlin.

Even though the rest stop is fairly new, it's not the first time that it has been closed because of bees. The same thing happened just a few months ago.

NDOT says that they have not received any reports of anyone being stung but they don't want to take any risks.

They have closed the rest stop until they can get rid of the majority of the bees.
