PROVO, Utah (KSL) — A Provo, Utah couple will sleep a little more soundly after a beekeeper removes a hive of tens of thousands of bees from inside their bedroom wall Saturday.
Tyler Judd and his wife moved into their home in Provo five months ago. They first noticed bees outside his home, then, late one night, he and his wife could hear them buzzing inside the walls.
“We were just sitting on our couch, turned off the TV and could hear some buzzing in the walls,” Judd said.
They called in a beekeeper, who located a colony of about 40,000 bees in the wall of the Judd’s master bedroom Friday.
The colony, said beekeeper Al Chubak, was causing bigger trouble to the home than just building their hive, as it was sending swarms to further colonize the area and removing insulation from the home’s interior.
