Skin-crawling moment thousands of bees are removed from a family’s roof after setting up a huge hive

  • A huge swarm of bees moves into a suburban family home in Brisbane’s north 
  • A professional beekeeper had to called in to removed the stinging insects 
  • Brisbane Backyard Bees owner says hives are increasing in regional areas

A bee hive was removed from the ceiling of a family home after the stinging insects invaded the ceiling of the suburban house.

The professional beekeeper who removed the swarm said the owner of the Bald Hills property in Brisbane’s north was not bothered by the bees – she just wanted to make sure they got a good home and were not hurt. 

Paul Wood, who owns Brisbane Backyard Bees, told Daily Mail Australia the thousands of insects were painstakingly removed over the Easter weekend without any being harmed.

Although he gets stung ‘most days’ this time he left unscathed. 

‘I didn’t get stung with this one and I didn’t wear much protective gear. This was a very calm hive,’ he said.

He insists that bees are ‘nice little creatures’ and that homeowners shouldn’t get scared or over-react when they find them buzzing around their property.

The number of callouts in regional centres and suburban areas has been dramatically increasing lately as more people take up beekeeping as a hobby.

‘When they reproduce the hive splits in two and sometimes they go into ceilings and walls because we don’t leave enough trees standing,’ Mr Wood said.

‘They would normally go into a hollow tree now they go into homes because they are the next best thing.’

Just days ago the beekeeping company posted photos on Facebook of another menacing swarm which was removed from a residential address in Northgate, in Brisbane’s north.

He called it a ‘simple job’.

‘It only took me a couple of hours from start to finish,’ he said.

‘Some of the bigger calls I’ve responded to in recent months have taken six hours or more.’
