SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — For 17 years, the cabin owners put up with unwanted guests — tens of thousands of them, all honeybees packed inside the eve of their A-frame in Ogden Valley. Nobody knew the hidden cavity held so many bees until Ogden beekeeper Vic Bachman was called to remove them.

He had to dismantle a panel that hid a set of roof rafters. Bachman says he removed a honeycomb hive 12 feet long, four feet wide and 16 inches deep. He safely captured 15 pounds of bees using a vacuum cleaner. That works out to about 60,000 bees. It was the biggest beehive Bachman says he’s ever seen in the Beehive state of Utah.
