A homeowner in Spring was stunned to learn he was sharing his home with hundreds of thousands of bees.

Brent Wallace says he knew there were a few bees buzzing around, but he had no idea they'd built a ten foot tall honeycomb in his garage. He called a bee removal service, which pulled back the wall and made the surprising discovery.

"I was amazed. You don't see a 10 foot honeycomb every day," Wallace said. "It was impressive from the standpoint of the fact that the bees could actually build that."

"About a foot and a half wide, about six inches thick," said Walter Schumacher with Central Texas Bee Rescue. "Very nice bees. They're happy and they have tons of honey stored."

Wallace wanted the insects to be humanely removed, so the bees will be relocated instead of killed.
