About 250,000 bees removed from home
A suburban Miami woman said a bee removal specialist destroyed about 250,000 bees inside the walls of her home.
Mary Olarte of Miami Shores said she was not concerned when dead bees began appearing outside of her house but she was shocked when a contractor discovered three thriving hives within the walls of her home, the Miami Herald reported Thursday.
Olarte said she collected more than 100 pounds of honey and wax from the now-vacated hives in her walls.
I have lots of friends, she said, and
everyone wants to try some.
