Bees swarm car in central Abilene

Local News

ABILENE, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) – Honeybees swarmed a car in central Abilene Thursday afternoon.

A KTAB and KRBC viewer walked out of the Communities of Abilene Federal Credit Union and found a menacing surprise – the back of her friends car was completely covered! 

“I hope those are not killer bees,” she says as she’s shooting video.

Good news – they’re likely just honeybees trying to protect their queen.

I Rescue Bees, an Abilene bee-keeping business, says that when the queen landed on the car to rest, her workers swarmed her and will remain until she decides to fly away. 

“We recommend that folks call a bee removal professional. They will follow the queen up to a certain point,” I Rescue Bees says.
