EDMOND, Okla. -- An Edmond woman is bugging out after her home was overrun by bees.

From the street, Janie Giordano's home blends into her neighborhood, but a hole on its side is creating quite a buzz.

"I could see just swarms of bees, just bees everywhere," explained Giordano.

At first glance, this industrial size honey maker seems to fill the area inside her wall. It was discovered by Janie's son and his beekeeper friend, after an A/C repairman felt the sting.

"The air conditioner man was bitten several times by bees," said Giordano. "They said that they were swarming outside in my drier vent."

So the duo dug in, uncovering a hive haven inside.

"They said they have never seen such a big nest in their life," said Giordano. "Said it was over 30 pounds of honey that he removed, and there's still more to go."

For now, Janie will remain at her home despite her son's wishes, as she plots to stop this abrasive bee break in.

"I don't know why this happened, and it scares me a lot...I wish I knew what to do."

Neighbors say they've been aware of a bee issue for quite some time.

Janie told NewsChannel 4 she's seen a few of the insects in her home before, but didn't know where they were coming from, or how bad the situation was.

She's adamant: she will not be using an exterminator, but would like to have the bees removed humanely.
