A swarm of 20,000 bees have chased a car for two days after their queen got trapped in the boot.
Carol Howarth, 65, from Haverfordwest in Wales told the Independent she “had never seen anything like it” when she returned to her car to find it swarming with bees.
The queen was still on the outside at that stage but after some experts intervened, the situation became a whole lot worse.
Five beekeepers spent hours removing the bees from the car and placing them into a cardboard box.
However, a gust of wind knocked the box over and the insects escaped.
During the confusion the queen, possibly “attracted to something in the car” flew into the boot and became trapped, Beekeeper Roger Burns said.
Unaware of what had just happened, Ms Howarth was chased by the 20,000 strong army of bees as she got in the car and drove away.
The swarm, unwilling to abandon their queen continued to chase the vehicle.
Several stings and two days later, Ms Howarth called in beekeepers once again and this time they managed to remove the hive permanently.
