It was crazy! I'm on my way home from getting some pot, and I think, I can save a few mintes by taking the highway home. Big mistake. I saw what I thought to be a moderate dust cloud, NOPE. It was a huge fucking swarm of bees. I thought some thing was amiss when the cloud made several hundred thumps and my car filled with bees. It wouldn't of been so bad if I hadn't of all 4 windows down. Luckly for me I didn't get stung, but still an unpleasent experience at 80mph. Just thought you all should know that there is a slight chance that cloud just might be something unexpected, like bees.

damn, that's crazy stuff.. i think i'd shit me pants if i had a swarm of bees surround my car like that..

closest i've come was driving through dc a few years ago, i ran into a group of locuses... that was pretty wild as well..

Lmao, i'm just glad I didn't stung. There were a bunch of dead ones in the backseat of my car. I ended up having to vacuum the car.

Do bees migrate or something? Also, didn't bees start droopping dead for some reason not to long ago? If so i'd kinda feel bad about running down a swarm lol

people say that bees are in the decrease, but i sure as fuck can't tell as i must have a bumble bee's nest out in my yard by my garage as whenever i sit out there with the dog, i see about 50 of those big fuckers flying right by my head..
tried finding the nest but can't seem to locate it.. my damn pup keeps trying to eat them.. she'll learn once she get's stung once though..

and yah, some bee's do migrate.. i know african bee's can travel large distances in search of a new nest..

There is a college not to far from where i'm at that had a huge bee hive in the walls of the school. You might want to make sure the little fuckers arn't hiding in the wall lol. As for your dog, it only took my dog once to figure it out, he was fine after that lol

hahaha, a giant swarm of bees is not something I'd ever anticipate driving my car through. Must have been quite the experience.

Also, racerboy, if you have like a wooden deck or anything look under there for the nest. They'll also build their hives in trees. At least honey bees will. Not sure if bumble bees do though.

2 years ago we had huge swarms of cicadas everywhere...big creepy things some black with huge red eyes...anyway they were way weird and they would end up plastering your car...I can only imagine what driving through on a motorcycle would do to a person

I was sooo glad I wasn't riding a motocycle! As for turkey, those thig can fuck someone and/or a car. We hit one once by accedent and it broke the grill and jammed the hood shut on my friends truck.

that exact same thing happened to me but i was only going 60..

we were on our way to the canyon and all of sudden i hear like 200 thumps on the windshield literally unable to see shit because it was splattered all over the windshield. we noticed it was bees so we continued for a little further til we noticed it was done and then had to clean that shit.

yes bees are on the decline because of the introduction of the africanized bees

My brothers German Shepard likes chasing all the flying insects to. We thought he would learn after getting stung, but he just shook it off, slobbered a bit and went right back at it.

That's insane. I would have ditched, GTA style.
