At the point when Carol Howarth stopped her Mitsubishi in the town of Haverfordwest, Wales, to do some shopping much to her dismay the pandemonium that would follow.
When she took care of her errands, a swarm of 20,000 bees was attracted to her vehicle. A nearby man, Tom Moses, saw the humming commotion and worried that the bees may be ineffectively dealt with, brought in a group of beekeepers.
He said, “It was spectacular. I was driving through when I spotted the big brown splodge”. “A lot of people were really amazed by it; cars were slowing down, and people were taking pictures of it.”
“I was a little bit concerned, with it being in the middle of town outside a pub, that someone might do something stupid and get hurt or do something stupid and hurt the bees,” he said.
With the arrival of beekeepers to do their job, Howarth also appeared and resolved it.
But no. the swarm kept her in their sights and managed to save her.
She said, “The next day I realized that some of the bees had followed me home”. So, she beckoned the beekeepers who were always ready to save.
“We think the queen bee had been attracted to something in the car, perhaps something sweet, and had got into a gap on the boot’s wiper blade or perhaps the hinge,” says Roger Burns of Pembrokeshire Beekeepers. “The swarm of around 20,000 had followed her and were sat around on the boot of the car.”
