The buzz around Wimbledon in recent days has been a bit unbee-lievable. A freak bee swarm caused fans to flee and it was all caught on video.  

Spectators took cover beneath picnic blankets and tables as the bees landed on their sarnies, strawberries and Pimm's, according to a Sun report. 

Now one UK bookmaker is betting on where the swarm of bees might end up next.

Paddy Power began offering odds on the next London bee swarm occurring at Henley Royal Regatta at 5 to 1 odds. 

Oh Honey, Pride London March had odds of 8 to 1 while Number 10 Downing Street was listed with 10 to 1 odds along with a handful of other well known addresses/daily rituals including the Changing of the Guard.

Westminster Abbey seemed to BEE a less likely target for these queens at 20 to 1 odds. 

Paddy's London headquarters were listed at 200 to 1 odds, but watch for what you wish for.
