This Swarm of Bees is on a Rescue Mission [Video]

This swarm of bees will go anywhere for their queen.

Bees stick together. No matter what.

Don’t believe us? Take a look at this swarm of almost 20,000 bees. Why are they surrounding the car? Because their queen was stuck inside. And don’t worry, this story has a happy ending.

“[T]he queen bee had been attracted to something in the car, perhaps something sweet, and had got into a gap on the boot’s wiper blade or perhaps the hinge,” Roger Burns of Pembrokeshire Beekeepers says.

“In the end, the adventurous queen and her subjects were reunited without harm,” Treehugger adds.

Get a look at the swarm in the video below.
