What would you do if you discovered that almost half a million bees were living in the walls of your new home?
When Sara Weaver and her husband purchased their dream 1872 Pennsylvania farmhouse they glossed right over the seller’s disclosure, ignoring an important note that should have bugged them.
“It said ‘bees in wall’ and that was it and I think because one, we didn’t see them and two, we were just so floored that we actually found land in the (school) district that was within our price range that I didn’t really ask any questions about those bees. I didn’t think it would be that big of an issue,” Weaver said
Turns out, it was.
There were three colonies that had been occupying the couple’s dream home for almost 40 years. They had to call in a local contractor and beekeeper, Allan Lattanzi, also known as “The Bee Man,” to get the job done.
