(Scroll down for video) Beekeepers were called twice in 24 hours, in order to get rid of 20,000 bees that followed an elderly woman’s car in the United Kingdom.
65-year-old Carol Howarth said that she was surprised by the large number of bees that have descended on her silver Mitsubishi Outlander as she was shopping in Haverfordwest.
A team of three beekeepers a park ranger and passersby helped capture and contain the swarm inside a cardboard box on Sunday.
Howarth then drove home, believing that the problem had been solved, only to discover on Monday morning, that the swarm had followed her and covered the car again.
She called back the beekeepers for a second time, and they finally managed to remove the swarm of 20,000 bees for good by 6:00 p.m.
The beekeepers believe that the queen was trapped inside the car and the 20,000 bees just followed her.
