Neighbors of a man who abandoned his home in Port Orange, Fla., are having an issue with bees.
“My kids can’t play in the back yard because of the bees. They sting them and now they’re coming in my house too, in the kitchen,” Stephanie Ball, who lives near the abandoned house, told WESH.
The beehive was originally removed last year, but beekeepers noted that another hive the size of a mattress was hidden in the attic. The owners attorney says he will grant the city access to remove the beehive. The city planned to fine the owner $250 a day for not taking care of the problem, reports WESH.
The owner of the home abandoned it and started to file for bankruptcy, but then stopped it before the banked foreclosed on the property, meaning he still owns the house.
