JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) – For years, thousands of bees ​were making a home at Ty Patterson’s house ​

“I’ve got 10 years plus worth of bees and didn’t even know it,” said Patterson, the homeowner.​

Over time, the busy bees built a honeycomb about 10 feet in length along the roof.​

“I don’t want to throw it away or harm the bees,” said Patterson. “I just want to get it I’m hoping we can actually save them. ​
I’m shocked it’s just a million bees in my house.”​

After noticing some bees swarming,​ she had two companies check it out. ​
​​
“Right now, we just opened the hole so they can fly,” said Jeremy Bates, said the owner of Remodeling to the Max. “Now ​we trying to remove the beehive full of honey so once we get that done ​so once we get that done we’ll go back and replace the corners.”​

It wasn’t all work. They all enjoyed the bee’s honey, never tasting anything like it. ​

“It don’t get no purer than this y’all,” said Joshua Davidson with Davidson Construction. “This straight from the mother nest, I ain’t going to ​
lie. I done taste a lot of honey in my life, and this has got to be the best.”
