In photos: Swarm of bees causes a buzz in Burnham-On-Sea!
swarm of hundreds of bees caused a buzz in Burnham-On-Sea on Friday
afternoon (May 13th) when they settled on this car.
owner Melissa Dell had to call for a beekeeper to remove the swarm
after it covered part of her VW Polo in Gloucester Road.
told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "My neighbour knocked on my door
to let me know the swarm had landed. I could hardly believe it
- it was an incredible sight!"
have no idea why they picked my car. There was no food for them
here, but they seemed to be attracted by the fuel cap at the back
of the vehicle."
local beekeeper was called to the scene, as pictured here, and
managed to round up the swarm and take it safely away.
