Thousands of bees evacuated from an empty house in Atlanta

Thousands of bees were evacuated from a vacant property in Atlanta after neighbors claimed they had been terrified of the insects for weeks.

Bees began flocking over the unoccupied house in the spring, according to residents who live nearby, and the number of insects has gradually increased since then.

Matthew Sease, who lives beside the house, told the media, “I’m afraid to come out the house sometimes.”

“I never went by the house because I was afraid of the bees and getting stung.”

The property owner hired a bee removal service, which arrived Thursday and removed thousands of bees from the home’s exterior and inside. According to Sease, workers claimed to have evacuated 98 percent of the bees.

The property owner did the right thing by engaging a professional service to remove the bees, according to Dave Marshall, director of the Metro Atlanta Beekeepers Association.

According to him, “the honey bee population has been struggling in recent years, so that’s why it’s more important that we’re doing the right thing for the honey bees and that’s not killing them if we do run into problems.”

“Somebody could try and kill them on their own, but it’s really not a good idea,” he added.
