    We had bees in the back portion of our farm house when I was young. They were so thick that we swere unable to inhabit the two back rooms, and we tried everything we could think of to get rid of the bees.
    A few years after we moved to town, a beekeeper asked if he could put some hives on our farm. We agreed, and also told him if he would get the bees out of the house, he could have all the honey he found.

    We had thought that the hive was in the walls of the house, but he found that it was actually under the floor, so it was no wonder we were unable to get rid of the bees.

    I don't know how many bees he collected, but it took the largest size of the old metal tubs to hold all of the honeycomb he harvested.
