Swarm of 30,000 bees surround home


Stunned homeowner Phil Sanderson was left buzzing after discovering this swarm of 30,000 BEES surrounding his home.

Father-of-three Phil, 34, went outside to investigate why the sky had ”turned black” and he could hear the sound of ”a crowd of people blowing vuvuzelas”.

He was shocked to find a monstrous swarm swirling around his four-bed home and buzzing so loudly he could not hear his partner Serena Reed, 34, talking.

After an hour the bees clumped together into a 2ft long ‘grape’ on a nearby 10ft high conifer tree before flying off.

Phil, a mail order catalogue worker who snapped the bees at home in Pinchbeck, near Spalding, Lincs., said the noise sounded ”exactly like being at a World Cup game”.

He said: ”At first I didn’t know what it was, it looked like a black snow blizzard all around the house and sounded like we’d been surrounded by people blowing vuvuzelas.

”But when I saw it was bees I was horrified. It was a bit of a rush to shut the windows to make sure none of them got in.

”I still can’t believe it when I look at the pictures, the last thing you expect is to be surrounded by 30,000 bees.”
