Who’s that at the front door setting
off the security camera? Oh, right,
just a swarm of bees.
This has been the reality for Gilbert, Arizona,
resident Keli Harper since the end of April.
Evidently, so many bees have taken
up residence outside of her family’s
front door that they’ve even started
setting off the security camera.
“When I checked the cameras, I literally
could not even see my front porch. It
just seemed like there was so many —
thousands of them,” Harper told CBS 5.
When the bees aren’t swarming around and
setting off the security camera, they’re often
clumped together in a giant, terrifying mass.
“I’m looking at an area of three feet, and
it looks like a bad paint job with texture
because there’s so many of them,” Harper said.
Evidently, the cluster of bees
has made it hard for Harper
to get deliveries.
Through her security camera, she’s
seen FedEx and UPS drivers run away
from her front porch upon realizing
what the textured mass is.
“I was speechless. My heart was
pounding so much. I just couldn’t even
— I was afraid to even go to the
door,” Keli’s son Austin said.
Thankfully, Harper was able to find
a beekeeper to safely remove the
bees. All in all, there were “almost
three pounds” of them
