Talk about having a bee in her bonnet!

Talk about having a bee in her bonnet!

A swarm of around 20,000 bees has taken over a car in Hull. Shirley Taylor, the unlucky owner of the car said the bees took a liking to her Nissan parked outside her front door on Sunday.

It’s not clear what had attracted the bees to the vehicle and Chairman of the Beverley Beekeepers' Association, Chris Coulson, said ‘it could take a while to clear them.’

Mrs Taylor said the bees had arrived on Sunday when she received a message from a neighbour warning her to be careful of her car when she got home – slight understatement perhaps?!

"I just went indoors and closed all the windows and the neighbours did as well," Mrs Taylor said.

"It has been a bit of a hair-raising experience. There were thousands all over the place and I have been stung and my daughter and granddaughter also got stung”

Mr Taylor had made light of the situation joking that perhaps they picked the Nissan because of all the Bee Gees CDs in the car!

Mr Coulson and his team are trying to make the bees fly into a box so they can be transported to a “more acceptable” home.

What would you do if you came home to a Bee party? We say RUN!
