PROVO, Utah, May 13 (UPI) -- A Utah couple who heard buzzing coming from inside their walls said a beekeeper removed a colony of about 40,000 bees from the home.

Tyler Judd said he and his wife moved into their home in Provo about five months ago and soon noticed bees outside the house and later heard the insects buzzing inside the walls, KSL-TV, Salt Lake City, reported Monday.

"We were just sitting on our couch, turned off the TV and could hear some buzzing in the walls," Judd said.

Judd said a beekeeper came to their home Friday and removed a colony of about 40,000 bees from inside the wall of their bedroom.

Beekeeper Al Chubak said the bees had likely been in the home for three to four years and were damaging the insulation.

"They're actually taking the insulation out and they're putting their honeycomb and their hive in its place," Judd said.

Chubak said he removed the bees with a vacuum and the hive was being relocated.
