Neighbor finds large beehive

Posted: Updated:

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Hundreds of bees swarmed around a huge branch at Arthur Acree's home on North Haley Street.

He worries they're Africanized Bees, the same kind that killed his friend, 73-year old Curtis Davis last October.

He says several days ago, the bees were in a small hole in this tree. They've tripled in size since.

"First it fascinated me then it scared me because I have grand kids who play out here," said Arthur Acree. "Some dropped on the swing and I didn't want them to get stung."

A bee specialist is going to take a look at the bees this weekend and test them to determine if they are Africanized bees.
