An elderly lady from Wales was amazed to realize a huge swarm of bees had descended onto the boot of her car while she was visiting a natural reserve with her son.
The swarm was apparently following a queen, they believed was trapped inside the car, for more than a day by clutching to the outside of the vehicle.
“This behavior is typical for the season and the bees can be extremely aggressive when swarming, since it is a strong instinct for the them to follow and protect their queen.” explains local bee-keeper and self-proclaimed pollination enthusiast Bert Dorsata.
Luckily, this time, the bees stayed on the outside of the car and the elderly lady escaped the day long ordeal relatively unharmed and a great story richer.
She later said the swarm eventually dispersed on its own once she dropped off her son, a middle-aged man dressed in a bright yellow two-piece suit, who was seen running from the car.
“It was all just a silly mistake.” states a bemused Mrs. Izzard.
