Bees swarm car in Mid-Michigan

Posted: Updated:
BAY COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

A swarm of bees descended on an SUV in Mid-Michigan.

The bees were following their queen and gathered on a vehicle at Menard’s off of Wilder Road, near Bay City on Tuesday July 21.

Monitor Township Fire Chief John Kramer explained the swarm was likely a part of a new hive.

"What they were basically doing is looking for a hive, and they found this car, and that's where they decided to take a break," Kramer said.

A beekeeper took away the queen in a special box, and most of the bees went with it.

No one was stung.
