It took bees two days to find and save their queen, trapped behind a car.

Many bees are swarming around a car as you walk around town. If that were a fairytale, wouldn’t it be a good story? Well, believe it or not, that’s what the people of Haverfordwest in West Wales had been seeing. Of course, everyone wondered what a swarm of bees had to do with an SUV car. Why did they do this? They were protecting their queen!

It’s said that when Carol Howarth, 68, went to a nature reserve near her home, the queen bee broke into her car. Bees are very loyal to their leader, so many started following the car.

For shopping a few hours later, Carol went into a store in her neighborhood. A ranger in the area saw the “big brown splodge” and told some beekeepers about it. The man was afraid that the bees would not be treated well.

This is what ranger Tom Moses, who works for the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, said. People were taking pictures of cars slowing down, and they were also taking pictures of them. I was a little worried that someone might get hurt or hurt the bees because it was outside a pub in the middle of town.

Soon after, the beekeepers arrived on the scene, and the problem seemed to be solved, at least at first. But it wasn’t even close to that. A few bees had stayed with Carol when she went home the next day. So, she called the beekeepers again to ask them to help her. Only this time did they figure out what was going on.

A beekeeper in Pembrokeshire, Roger Burns, said that the bee was probably drawn to something sweet in the car and had gotten into a gap on the wiper blade or the hinge of the car’s trunk. People who had been following her were sitting in the car’s trunk.

Eventually, the bees and their queen could get back together, and no one was hurt. On the other hand, Roger has been beekeeping for almost 30 years, and that was the weirdest thing he’s ever seen, even for him.
