You may not see loyalty as common with human beings as you see it with animals and insects.
And this particular incident will leave you baffled beyond belief.
According to reports, a swarm of 20,000 bees chased a vehicle for 2 whole days. If you’re wondering why, well, the answer is simple. Their queen bee was stuck inside, and they couldn’t leave her alone. Therefore, they attempted a rescue operation in full throttle.
Their undue dedication led them towards a unique rescue journey. Therefore the insects followed one 65 year old’s Mitsubishi Outlander for 48 hours. And it was all for the sake of the ‘Queen.’
Nature studies explain how the queen bee is responsible for the hive’s survival. As a result, you’ll find the other bees feeding her and grooming her. It’s truly a unique ideology altogether.
Reports from CNN confirmed how the 65-year-old car owner received the shock of her life. She simply couldn’t get her head around the fact why this giant bee swarm attacked her vehicle. But how did the queen bee get stuck in the first place?
Well, the elderly woman made a nature visit to a natural reserve. And that’s when queen bee entered Carol Howarth’s vehicle, without her knowing. After all, the tiny winged passenger wasn’t very visible at first. But soon enough, Carol knew something was wrong.
Why would 20,000 bees swarm on to her car? Moreover, Carol announced how she saw the bees glued to her vehicle backside, after stepping out for a shopping errand. She was at West Whales at that point in time.
Clueless on what to do, Carol was luckily spotted by a National Park Ranger. Thankfully, he contacted reinforcements from the Beekeepers associations. They arrived in no time to handle thee rather bizarre situation. One beekeeper appeared with an empty box.
He tried his level best to put the giant swarm inside. However, some remained glued to the car’s rear end. Beekeeper numbers two, three, and four then attempted to finish off the task safely, escorting the remaining swarm into another box. In the end, the 3-hour operation was a success.
On the whole, this is one bee incident that Carol will never forget for the rest of her life. And we’re pretty sure it’s another historic example of the loyalty that insects have for their queen.
