Swarm of Five Thousand Bees Mobs Central London TopshopExpand

A swarm of unruly and confused honeybees http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-london-27444845" rel="nofollow - took over a Topshop on Victoria Street in London yesterday afternoon , presumably looking for spring sales or to reassert the ferocity of Wu-Tang Clan. Beekeepers came to divert the bees elsewhere, away from retail.

You are bees! You cannot shop. According to the BBC,

Tony Mann, a trained beekeeper, said the bees were flying around the areas "like scouts." The bees were moved to nearby Westminster Cathedral, where they will be looked after by beekeepers on the church's roof.

The beekeepers had to smoke the bees into a box and were carried away. Apparently, the source of the bee swarm was unknown but a handful of shops in the area have their own hives. So from there? Bees.

Many shoppers were trapped inside the Topshop while the situation was being handled. Laura Buckle, a 28-year-old public relations worker from North London, http://www.standard.co.uk/news/london/shoppers-attacked-by-huge-swarm-of-bees-in-victoria-topshop-store-9383009.html" rel="nofollow - told The Standard :

"All of a sudden there were thousands and thousands of bees flying around. You could hardly see the sky because there were so many."

Just like you'd expect, the end of days begins Topshop.

Kelly Conaboy

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T2cuw8I5hk4&r=1" rel="nofollow - video


A student in Portsmouth, England named George Neal recently awoke to a living nightmare: 20,000 bees covering his Nissan Micra, which was parked outside of his home.

One of Neal's housemates, Rory Edwards, first noticed that the bees had chosen Neal's car. He spoke to http://www.itv.com/news/2014-05-16/a-swarm-of-20-000-bees-set-up-hive-in-students-car/" rel="nofollow - ITV about it:

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.

Although none of us are allergic, we thought George probably would not want his car covered in a swarm of bees. He did literally have a bee in his bonnet though.

He called Portsmouth City Council to take care of it, and they sent over a local bee keeper to safely remove the huge swarm. He explained that this time of year is the height of the swarming season, when young queens leave their mother's hive to find a place (like a car, or a http://gawker.com/swarm-of-five-thousand-bees-mobs-central-london-topshop-1577902544" rel="nofollow - Topshop ) to raise their own colony.

This reminds me of an ex collg many moons ago who told me a friend of his and his wife, plus two kids went on holiday (I think Australia or New Zealand) on their last day before returning to London, they visited this bee sanctuary thing. Some thing went major wrong and bees had escaped. Both parents died. I remember collg telling me that relatives were getting ready to pick up the children aged around 11 and 13. Indian family.
Sad. I still think about this story but it must have been about 5 years ago or longer

20 Million Bees Swarm Delaware Highway After Tractor-Trailer Crash

20 Million Bees Swarm Delaware Highway After Tractor-Trailer CrashExpand

Authorities in Delaware http://www.nbcphiladelphia.com/news/local/Tractor-Trailer-Hauling-Live-Bees-Overturns-on-I-95-260027591.html?_osource=SocialFlowTwt_PHBrand" rel="nofollow - spent most of Tuesday night cleaning up the wreckage from a tractor-trailer crash. The cleanup took longer than usual because of the truck's cargo: 20 million bees, most of which escaped and swarmed the truck.

From http://www.nbcphiladelphia.com/news/local/Tractor-Trailer-Hauling-Live-Bees-Overturns-on-I-95-260027591.html?_osource=SocialFlowTwt_PHBrand" rel="nofollow - NBC Philadelphia :

The big rig, which was holding about 20 million bees in 460 boxes, overturned on the state Route 896 northbound on-ramp to I-95 northbound in Newark shortly after 6 p.m., according to officials.

It would take nearly 13 hours to clean-up the mess.

Proving it always pays to be prepared, Delaware State Sgt. Paul Shavack said it was the first time the state had used their "honeybee swarm removal plan."

Three bee handlers were called to the scene. They, along with firefighters, worked to disperse the bees, 90 percent of which were lost after the crash.

"They've been traumatized so they're pretty well upset now," Paul Dill, one of the beekeepers, told NBC Philadelphia.

Another witness https://twitter.com/chrismayCBS3/status/468952498775285761" rel="nofollow - described the bees as "thirsty... disoriented and angry." Sounds about right.

The truck's driver, Adolfo Guerra, and two passengers suffered minor injuries in the crash. They were also stung 50-100 times each. Guerra was later cited for unsafe shifting of a load in relation to a crash.

Why are those people in the op just watching??
The onlookers don't seem to be too panicked, I'd have been.
