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 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 Topshop) to raise their own colony.
