Family finds 450,000 bees living in a new home in Skippack Township, Pennsylvania

Skippack Township, PA-When Saraweaver and her husband bought a dream farmer in Skippack Township, PA last fall, they knew it would be a fixer upper.

“I knew it was big. I didn’t know how big it was,” said Weaver, who couldn’t believe it when she found her big problem. ..

Nearly 500,000 bees live on the walls of this house.

Alan Ratanji, also known as the “Beeman,” has been talking about the house for years.

“Former homeowners didn’t want to get rid of them, and she clearly stated they’ve been here for over 35 years,” said Lattanzi. “I had an infrared camera and could scan the wall from the inside to see the size of the colony.”

The housing market is so competitive that Weaver said he wasn’t inspected. Still, the details of the sale bothered her.

“The seller’s disclosure says’bees on the wall’and we didn’t ask any questions about it. In retrospect, this wasn’t the wisest thing to do,” she said. ..

Weaver says she and her family have been looking for a farmer in her child’s school district for six years. She says the “bees on the wall” reports thought they were often overlooked. Then spring came.

“One huge colony was the size of the entire staircase, and that was when I found out that this was big,” she said.

The contractor, Lattanzi, has been working on colony removal for months, but to do so, the entire wall had to be removed.

“This will be $ 12,000,” Weaver said.

She says she will buy the house again, even if the cost of repairing it stings.
