Austin woman has thousands of bees removed from home

AUSTIN, TX She s lived with bees her whole life, but one Austin woman has said when it comes to her buzzing roommates, enough is enough.

Lillian Johnson has lived off East Manor Road in a green house with white trim for all 41 years of her life. Unfortunately, so have nearly a quarter million honeybees. Last month, after being stung for the 20th time, she decided it was time for the bees to go.

Cost of removal starts at $200, which was too high for Johnson s budget. An extermination crew offered to do the job for $150, but a local bee relocation business, Central Texas Bee Rescue said they would take care of Johnson s giant in house hive for a mere $100.
