A tractor-trailer in Mississauga took on an unexpected load when a swarm of passing honeybees stuck themselves to its cab.

Peel Regional Police said the big rig was parked when the bees moved in Sunday afternoon, covering the cab’s bumper and part of its windshield.

The mess occurred when the bees were moving nests and the buzzing throng was so full of honey they needed a place to rest — settling on the vehicle.

Police have called in a beekeeper to handle the sticky situation.
