Bees instantly started “falling out” of the ceiling, and globs of thick, sweet honey followed, Ohrmundt said.
Over the course of six hours, the beekeeper was stung about 10 to 15 times as he used a vacuum to suck them off the honeycomb and into large canisters. He plans to safely relocate them…
With all the commotion, Ohrmundt wasn’t even thinking about the honey dripping from the walls. Chaisson told her there was about 60 pounds of it — the honeycomb weighed about 120 pounds.
“My roommate is furious for not getting any of the honey,” Ohrmundt joked. “But the beekeeper said he would bring me some.”
