50,000 Bees Removed From Home

Associated Press - May 27, 2014 7:06 am

A north Wichita home is no longer buzzing.

The homeowner, who is planning to renovate the house, discovered a large bee hive and called professional beekeeper Wes Wolken.

Wolken spent most of Sunday removing an estimated 50,000 bees from under the home.

KAKE-TV reports Wolken found a network of honeycomb that extended 18 feet long, with almost 50 pounds of honey.

Wolken used a special vacuum to remove the bees by sucking them into a canister. The bees will be relocated to an arboretum, where they’ll stay until they are healthy enough for a new, permanent location.
