HARRY-POTTER

BUZZ OFF!!

bees

The Orange Rooms may well be sweet but do us a favour!!!

Thousands of bees had to be removed from a concrete bollard in Southampton after the swarm descended on a street behind the Orange Rooms.
Passer-bys were sent “running” as they were warned of the bees by worried workers at a nearby bar.

Chloe Adams, from the Orange Rooms, said: “They just appeared – a big ball of bees. People passing had to do a double take while others ran away.”

Dave Norris, from the Southampton and District Beekeepers Association, was called in to lure the queen bee into a large box with the swarm following.
He estimated there was up to 7,000 bees and said the swarm resembled a “policeman’s helmet”.

Mr Norris, who removed the swarm on Friday, said: “I have no idea what attracted them to the bollard – if I could tell you why they choose certain places I would be a very rich man.
“They like dark places so the box lures them in and they tend to follow the queen.”

It is thought more swarms are being found in towns and cities due to an increase in inexperienced beekeepers taking up the hobby.
