A beekeeper removed 20,000 bees from a 98-year-old woman’s home in Florida Saturday after they built a hive in the attic of her home.

“They didn’t bother me,” said Cocoa Beach resident Sevia Moore, whose daughter had to show her the hive nestled in an awning inside her house. “When I was outside, I didn’t even see any.”

Beekeeper Leo Cross used a vacuum to collect the bees and move them to a more appropriate location. He preserved the honey comb and hive, telling WESH TV that it is important for the bees to “go on to reproduce” since the bee population is struggling.
