VIRGINIA – A bakery in Virginia is getting quite a bit of a buzz.

That’s because this week the owner discovered a hive with about 20 to 30 thousand honey bees above her shop.

She says she saw the insects around when she moved into the space in April, but thought they were coming from the bushes.

“No idea. No idea. I had a customer come in and ask me do I know where they could purchase local honey. Little did I know, they could have tapped into my ceiling and got some.”

Bee keepers estimate that the bees had been there for at least four years.

A local bee keeper came by the shop to remove them.
