Experts believe the 20,000 bees found in the Mill Place Apartments in Orangeville have been there for a year.
Wylie Hudspeth of Coyote Enterprises has a plan to remove the bees.
“I’m going to ballpark 20,000,” said local beekeeper Wylie Hudspeth, CEO of Coyote Enterprises Inc., after examining the westerly wall of the Mill Place Apartments on Church Street on Wednesday (Aug. 9).
“They are between the brick and the interior frame,” he added. “We’re scooping out the honey, the comb. … Once we get the queen, they will all come into the box that I’ve making for them.”
