LEHIGH ACRES, Fla.- A massive bee hive attached to a home is making the homeowner and neighbors nervous. 

The bee hive is right near a bus stop, that sometimes scares the kids are they are coming home from their day at school. 

The two little kids who live in the home know that they are supposed to do, "My mom said we need to stay away from the bee hive" said 11-year-old Helen. 

Tara, Helen's mother, told Fox 4 her husband has tried to take it off, "My husband tried boiling water up there to get rid of the beehives and didn't affect them at all", and phone calls to professional to remove the bees have ended in disappointment. "They told me it will be 300 to 500 dollars, and right now I don't have that kind of money." 

Fortunately, Fox 4's Patrick Nolan was able to contacted beekeeper  Keith Councell, who says he will go to the home and remove the bees on Friday for free. Councell won't kill the bees either, he's going to use them to pollinate watermelon, squash, and other produce at Councell Farms. 

Fox 4 will follow up on Friday so we can show you have things go!
