Woman finds swarm of 100,000 bees living in her home twice

A Georgia woman was shocked to find a swarm of at least 100,000 bees living in her house — for the second time.

Lisa Ohrmundt has been living in her home in Decatur for 14 years, and in that time she told CNN she has had to remove bees from her home four times.

“Four years ago, in May of 2017, we had a really big hive taken out, a couple years later we had a smaller one taken out, then a week or so ago we had a smaller one taken out, and then this one … hopefully is the grand finale,” Ohrmundt said.

Ohrmundt said she discovered the bees after noticing them flying around the outside of her house and disappearing.

“You see them going in and out and you think—that’s odd!” she said. “This time a lot of bees kept getting in our house—any given day there would be 20 to 25 bees at the base of our sliding glass door.”

Ohrmundt even said after the first huge swarm, a neighbor told her the previous owners also had to have bees removed, according to CNN.

Bobby Chaisson, operations director at Georgia Bee Removal, told CNN there’s no rhyme or reason why the bees are choosing Ohrmundt’s house.

“They just love that house. I don’t know what it is, it’s like they have a sign on the side of the house that says: ‘Bees Welcome, Please Move In,’” he said.

Chaisson estimated that he removed at least 100,000 bees from the home, but it came in second to the 2017 swarm that he estimates had over 120,000 bees.

“It’s crazy the ones we have removed from there because generally an average colony of bees that have moved in and ‘set up shop’ so to speak, will be about 40,000 bees on average, and as you can see, the ones there are gigantic,” Chaisson said.

“Word on the street is it’s a great place to live!” Ohrmundt joked. “I had (Bobby) go down the wall with his heat sensor to see about any other potential homes— hopefully not, but I wouldn’t rule anything out.”
