PROVO, Utah (CBS Las Vegas) – A colony of approximately 40,000 bees was discovered inside the bedroom walls of a local home.
The couple noticed the problem not long after they moved into their new home. After settling in five months ago, they began to notice bees near the house.
Soon, the couple also detected the distinct sound of buzzing inside the walls of their home, according to KSL-TV.
“We were just sitting on our couch, turned off the TV and could hear some buzzing in the walls,” homeowner Tyler Judd was quoted as saying to KSL.
The family soon called in beekeeper Al Chubak to remove the colony which reportedly consisted of a whopping 40,000 bees.
Chubak, who told the station that he used a vacuum to safely remove the bees and relocated the hive itself, said the bees had likely been inside of the home for three or four years, and had been causing damage to the insulation.
Judd further explained, “They’re actually taking the insulation out and they’re putting their honeycomb and their hive in its place.”
