Faced with a swarm with as many as 7,000 bees (an estimate – no one counted) council officials called in an expert to remove them.
This particular swarm had landed on a street sign in Yaxley near Peterborough.
Not for the first time either for three years ago residents of Lancaster Way, Yaxley, woke to discover a massive swarm had ‘moved in’.
This week beekeeper Mike Lewin was called to help remove a swarm from elsewhere in the village.
Watched only by a passing photographer, he did so skilfully and with minimum fuss. The occasional bee stinging him seemingly part of everyday life.
