According to CNN, a 68 year old grandmother was chased by a swarm of 20,000 bees for two days. Apparently the Queen became stuck inside the Mitsubishi Outlander and the hive went after her!
Beekeepers painstakingly removed the swarm only to have them appear the next day. Another careful relocation of the bees took place and the incident ceased. Experts believe the Queen must have been looking for a new hive and thought the vehicle would make a cozy new home. It is not unusual for bees to follow their Queen if she moves hives but it IS unusual for them to return to the scene of the crime if she’s no longer there to pursue. Both the bees and the grandmother are safe and sound.
How would you react if you looked in your rear view mirror and a horde of bees had attached to your car’s backside?
