So it turns out there are about 10,000 bees living in our building on Clifton Campus in Nottingham, which is er, a real buzz. The resident bee keeper told us they almost certainly came from his hive near the Crime Scene Training Facility on campus.

Searches for the queen proved fruitless but on the plus side, I got to pretend I was an astronaut.

Can’t be too careful. They’ll have you, those bees




It’s been concluded that seeing as the bees don’t fly in our window (despite their wall cavities being a few feet away) the Uni won’t try and get rid of them: good news for anyone who likes a Bulmers.
