Cape May 30,000 Bees
Published: May 6, 2012
Cape May 30,000 Bees, A couple from Cape May, NJ have discovered a startling 30,000 bees hiding in their attic â€“ complete with a huge wax honeycomb and hive.
Victoria Clayton and boyfriend Richard White live in a former bed-and-breakfast on Washington Street that dates from 1866. After noticing an unusually high number of honeybees in their lush garden, not to mention streams of bees heading toward a third-floor laundry vent, the couple decided to investigate.
Thatâ€™s when they discovered their visitors hiding in the attic. Last Thursday, a bee expert spent much of the day removing the honeycomb and 30,000 of the buzzing creatures from the attic of the property. There may have been a severe drop in worldwide honeybee populations in recent years, but this was a thriving group.
Victoria and Richard decided to have their fuzzy, buzzy lodgers moved to a new home after they read that honeybees are the â€śgoodâ€ť bees that pollinate many of the worldâ€™s food crops.
Experts have previously suggested that between 50 and 90 percent of the worldâ€™s feral honeybee population has disappeared, with numerous factors blamed for their decline, including decades of urbanization, pesticides, and parasitic mites. (The Inquisitr)
