Huge beehive found inside walls

PROVO, Utah -- A couple living in Utah found out they had some unexpected roommates when they could hear a soft buzzing noise in their living room.

Turns out, about 40,000 bees were taking up residence inside the walls of an apartment complex.

A beekeeper used a special vacuum to suck the bees out and move the queen to relocate the hive.

"The funny thing with hives is that the ones that beekeepers have in their boxes seem to be dying across the county, all over: 60-percent since last fall, yet the ones in homes are doing fantastic," said Al Chubak, beekeeper.

The bees moved out insulation in the walls to make room for the hive.

Beekeepers say if you do not get the entire hive out, they could move right back in.
