SAN ANTONIO, Sept. 4 (UPI) -- A Texas bee removal business said it relocated about 40,000 of the insects that had taken up residence in a Catholic church.

Gillian Hodler of Central Texas Bee Rescue in Austin said team members removed the hive and its residents from the Holy Spirit Catholic Church in San Antonio after church workers spotted the hive about 30 to 40 feet up at the facility, WOAI-TV, San Antonio, reported Wednesday.

Hodler said the bees were taken to a remote location.

"Take it out into the country in a place called an aviary where we can set them up in a hive box, just a regular white, you know, bee box and they can live out there in peace," Hodler said.
