    Experts Remove Bees, 450 Pounds Of Honey From Home
    Bees Have Been Living In Home For 10 Years

    HOUSTON -- A southwest Houston family will spend a lot of money and time repairing their home after exterminators removed thousands of bees living inside their walls, Local 2 reported Thursday in an exclusive story.
    Honey Dripping From Ceiling Alerts Family To Bee Problem

    The family said they first discovered the bees living in the walls of their home on Wilcrest Drive near Bellfort Street when honey started dripping from the ceiling.

    "They just started coming in the house," homeowner Mary Hooper said.

    The homeowner said she didn't know she had two giant beehives built into her wall and ceiling.

    "I didn't know we had so many," Hooper said.

    Hooper called Gotcha Pest Control to remove the bees.

    "I can feel the bees on the outside of the house," exterminator Claude Griffin said.

    Expert says it appears bees had been living in home for 10 years.

    Over four hours, Griffin and colleagues knocked out bricks and cuts holes in Hooper's home to remove thousands of bees living in a honeycomb the size of a pickup truck's hood built into the walls. They also removed nearly 450 pounds of honey.

    "Literally, the honey was dripping down where they were eating breakfast," Griffin said.

    Griffin told Local 2 it appeared the bees had been living in the home for 10 years.

    "He reminds me of Red Adair -- only he's fighting bees instead of oil well fires," Hooper said.

    Experts say the best way to prevent bees from getting into the walls of a home is by ensuring there are no cracks in the home.

    Hooper said it cost her about $2,000 to remove the bees, which is not covered by insurance.
