Sheila Sabatine of Bangor, Pennsylvania was preparing for a laid back day. She pulled an outdoor lounge chair into the shade of a tree and was puzzled when she heard an odd buzzing sound.
Much to her surprise and chagrin, about 10,000 bees had formed a football-sized hive under her seat of choice. They were none too pleased with the sudden relocation.
Sabatine managed to scamper into the house without getting stung.
Joe Kuka, a local beekeeper reported that swarming bees are generally not aggressive. Wisely Kuka added that if Mrs. Sabatine had plunked herself down in the chair, "she would have got up in a hurry."
