Thousands of bees found inside the walls of a South fl home


A South Florida home is busy buzzing with activity.
   
Experts found about 100-thousand bees living in the walls of the house, which is overwhelming so they had to go.

They are thousands of bees infesting the inside walls of her Fort Lauderdale residence for about eight years. Reynolds said she has tried to get rid of the bees by dumping foam and insect killer. She said the problem was slightly eliminated, but the bees came back three years later, and this time even stronger.

The home owner said, "I don't know if it's two hives, if it's one, if the queen, the duchess, everybody showed up."

They started attacking family members.
    "There were about like 10 or 20 all inside the house, flying around stinging us."

That's when she said it was time to call the professionals.
    "Our plan of attack is to drill a hole into the wall to find out exactly where they are, open up the wall, exterminate the bees and take out the bee hive."

The only way to get rid of a bee problem of this size is to have the specialists come to your house and have them tear down the walls. According to bee specialists, the darker honey combs found at the Reynolds home could be eight to ten years old, while the lighter ones, which are more traditional looking, could be two or three years old.

Now that the honeycombs are gone the bees won't be far behind. She said this small jar of honey is the only reminder she needs.

"They got to go, they got to go. I can't take them any more just hovering around. You can't even open your windows."
