Imagine hearing buzzing in your walls and then discovering 40,000 bees have moved into your bedroom.

That’s what happened to Tyler Judd and his wife. After moving into their home in Provo, Utah, five months ago they began noticing bees flying inside and outside the house.

Then one night last week, after turning off the television set, they heard a buzzing sound coming from within the walls.

"We were just sitting on our couch, turned off the TV and could hear some buzzing in the walls," Judd told Utah's KSL.com.

The couple called local bee keeper Al Chubak who located a colony of about 40,000 bees in the wall of the Judd's master bedroom.

According to Chubak, the hive likely began to form three to four years before the Judd's moved into their home.

Chubak cut a large hole in the wall of the bedroom to remove the bees and their hive, using a vacuum cleaner to suck up the insects.

"They're actually taking the insulation out and they're putting their honeycomb and their hive in its place," Judd said.

In addition to removing the insulation from the building, Chubak said that Judd's bee hive has likely been responsible for colonizing other hives in the residential area.

"The funny thing with hives is the ones that beekeepers have in their boxes seem to be dying across the county, all over 60 percent since last fall," Chubak said. "Yet the ones in homes are doing fantastic."

Chubak also relocated the honeycomb, telling KSL.com that if you leave the hive you "left their pantry, you left their bedding, you left their sofa and they just move right back in."
