Saginaw Family Besieged By Bees

Posted: Updated:

SAGINAW, Mich. (AP) - A Saginaw family is under attack by tens of thousands of bees living in a maple tree at their home.

Toby Sewell, owner of J&T Beekeepers, says that he estimates 60,000 to 70,000 bees were living in the tree.

Crystal Parker says the bees swarmed Sunday above her home. "Saying there were a lot of bees would be an understatement," she says.

Sewell says he's dealt with past problems with big bee colonies and says he's got a plan to get the bees out of the neighborhood. He'll build a beehive replica, seal off all but one entrance to the inside of the tree and lure bees into the replica.

He says the bees will be moved to another location.
