Thousands of bees removed from Nebraska home

OMAHA, Neb. ( Associated Press) – About 6,000 bees were recently removed from inside the walls of an Omaha couple’s 100-year-old home.

Thomas and Marylu Gouttierre told the Omaha World Herald they planted bee-friendly flowers outside their downtown home, but they never expected the bees to move in.

The bees probably infiltrated through a hole in the mortar of its brick exterior. The Gouttierres discovered them after noticing many bees flying outside their kitchen window and finding about 30 in a bedroom on the second floor.

Gouttierre said their first thought was to call an exterminator, “but we have read and there are many amazing programs on PBS ‘Nature’ about how important bees are to pollinate the world in which we live.”

Gouttierre said he and his wife tasted some of the honey before Gilligan took the bees home to its surface.

Gilligan said he has removed bees from a number of homes, apartments, barns and trees over the past seven years. The last house he built before the Gouttierres had 15,000 bees.
