One poor student from Portsmouth in Britain had nightmares realised this week when a beehive turned his car’s wheel well into a new home.
George Heal, 21, had left his Nissan Micra parked securely just outside his house when his housemates noticed it had attracted some insectoid friends. Some 20,000 bees, led by a young queen in search of a residence, had admired the green automobile and set up a colony there.
The now becalmed students, led by Heal’s housemate, Rory Edwards, formed a plan.
Speaking to ITV, Edwards said, “It was a bit of a strange sight. The bees were pretty timid though—they weren’t really interested in anything but George’s car. Maybe they wanted a lift.
