They tried to set them on fire.

A GAME IN Brazil at the weekend between Ponte Preta and Atletico Sorocaba was delayed for 15 minutes after a large number of bees attached themselves to the goal.

According to, the fire department had to be called in after officials weren’t able to scare off the bees with fire. As the video below shows, firefighters doused the bees with some sort of liquid, and then sprayed them with an extinguisher. The game resumed and Preta won 2-1.
