A large colony of bees have set up their home on a sign post in High Wycombe.

The swarm landed on a sign for B C Service & M O T in Lane End Road, High Wycombe. 

Rachal Sharples saw them on the bright yellow and blue sign on Wednesday, warning people driving by.

A beekeeper is currently on the site to clear the swarm. 

As spring heats up the warmer weather triggers honey bee colonies to reproduce and leave the hive in swarms.

These large and noisy groups can be an incredible spectacle as they come to rest on trees or garden walls, but they can also select areas that are unsuitable for those who live nearby.

According to The British Beekeepers Association, most swarms occur on warm sunny days from May to the end of July usually between 11am – 4pm.
