“Here is a beautiful colony of bees!” exclaimed Andrew Card, a beekeeper who was contacted directly by the owner of the house while he was filming his discovery.

Removing plasterboard from the ceiling of the owner’s guest bedroom revealed three hiveseach contained about 60,000 bees. According to the beekeeper, “The oldest of the three hives must be at least seven years old, while the others would have been established more recently” he told ITV.

Using a special vacuum cleanerl “Bee Vac”, half of the bees from each hive were gently removed. They were transferred to new hives. Tests will be carried out soon to detect possible diseases.

Bees escorted to new hives

As for the honey produced under the beams of the house, it will not be packaged and sold. It will support the bees that were saved. However, he hopes that this gigantic bee colony will allow him to produce honey for his business.
