Swarm of Bees Scare Off La Marina Pub Goers

A swarm of bees got people running out of their seats outside a La Marina village bar on Monday lunchtime. The swarm appeared close to premises on the main Avenida de la Alegría in the village at around noon, with customers fleeing as the swarm approached.

Emergency services were called, with a beekeeper (picture from the Información newspaper) arriving at the scene to remove a honeycomb from a tree on the street. It’s the latest of a whole series of “bee” incidents hitting the southern Costa Blanca and Mar Menor in recent weeks due to the mild wet winter leading to an early blooking of flowers.
