SASKATOON, Canada (STORYFUL) - A swarm of bees descended on a Costco parking lot in Saskatoon, Canada covering a Ford pickup truck.

Video posted to Facebook shows thousands of bees covering the front passenger side of the vehicle. Ultimately, a beekeeper was called to remove the insects, CBC reported.

According to a local bee expert who spoke to the media, swarms are a sign of a healthy hive and occur when a queen leaves a parent hive.
