Bees swarm onto car at Castlepoint shopping centre

Bournemouth Echo: Picture from Jim Hastings Picture from Jim Hastings

A SHOPPER could not bee-lieve it when he saw this car swarmed by bees at a Bournemouth shopping centre.

The car, which was parked outside Sainsbury’s at Castlepoint, had the rear light covered in honeybees on Saturday afternoon.

A spokesman for Castlepoint said they called in a volunteer to remove the bees before the car could be driven away.

The beekeeper, John Bradley from East Dorset Bee Keepers’ Association, arrived fully dressed in protective clothing and teased the bees into a basket with smoke.

The owner had been shopping in the supermarket when the bees arrived and was told to stay parked until all the bees had gone.

No one was injured or stung.

Jenny Wellman, secretary at East Dorset Bee Keepers’ Association, said the swarm was a natural process for bees to expand their numbers, and that it is not unusual to see this in May and June.

She said it was correct that the bees had laid a new queen in their previous colony and the old queen is accompanying her old bees to a new home. All people have to do is to either phone the local council who have our number or go to the British Bee Keepers’ Association website for help,” she added.

“Don’t try and deal with them yourself, or if you are in a car, don’t drive away.

“Call an expert – don’t put yourself in harm’s way. These bees are not fussy about where they pitch themselves.”

I no nothing about bees. believe it or not. I f you are confronted, with this, identify the queen bee (generallly larger than the rest.) and remove it slowly, so all the worker bees know where the queen bee is. I am sure this approach is no good anyway. Any ideas?

It happens after a queen has laid eggs into special queen cups within the hive. The old queen will leave the hive with most of her workers to establish a new hive before the new queens hatch. The pheromones given off by the queen cause the workers to cluster very tightly around her, creating the swarm.

The departure is usually triggered by the sun being high in the sky on a bright day. Most swarming will occur during a period of 2 to 3 weeks in late spring, so a concentration of reports is perfectly normal.

As long as it isn't disturbed it is extremely rare for a swarm of bees to sting (they don't have brood to protect), hence the need to call in an experienced bee keeper to remove the swarm.

In a hole on the side of my house they have been there since Thursday the swarm was about a metre long on the wall to start off with and is now has split to about the size of a hub cap during the day when they come out of the hole in the wall I am hoping they move on soon as I don't want to open any windows as have a new baby and young children

I'd get a bee keeper out to move them on rather than waiting for them to go away. I'm pretty sure once they've built a nest they'll be much harder to remove.

I agree. Why bother posting on here when you could try and find someone to get rid off them? Of course, these things always happen on Fridays or weekends when many offices are closed!

Saw a much bigger swarm in a car in Wimborne a few years ago. Scary but fascinating.

New kind of VW BEEtle?
Stick to the day job, or get one.
I'll get a 'day job' if you will find someone who can/will be available 24/7 to give the same level of care, at the same cost to my very ill GF whom I've cared for, with very little help, for close to ten years.
The person MUST have the relevant skills to perform catheter removal & replacement, ability to give IV drugs, a reasonable understanding of diabetes monitoring/use of pump/insulin levels. Understanding of home dialysis & the problems etc involved (at times).
Yes my lazy **** will get a 'day job' if a bigot & a chauvinist like you can get someone to work for, most probably, less than £2 an hour at most. Can't give an exact figure as I've never tried to work it out.

Bees swarm at this time of year, it's just a natural, annual process, it's how we get new beehives. I think it's making the news more because of the one that happened on London's high street, bee's are suddenly "interesting" to the media.
