George and Peggy White have lived in the same stone house since they built it in 1965, but they never thought they would encounter a problem like the one they are now facing. Almost five years ago, Peggy noticed a large number of honeybees were living inside the wooden porch on the second floor of her home.

For three years now, they have searched for someone to move the bees.
