(Newser) – Beekeepers have quite the task ahead of them as they remove an estimated 1 million honey bees that have taken up residence at a New York home. The Times Herald-Record of Middletown reports two beekeepers were at work yesterday removing siding on the outside of the Wallkill house to get to them.
