SUMMERVILLE — A home off Butternut Drive just lost some buzz — at least 60,000 honeybees and one mammoth hive.
Eric “Critter” McCool of McCool Wildlife Services removed the 5-foot-long hive from an overhang in the house. McCool, who’s carved a reputation separating the monsters from their unwitting hosts, took a bee hive big enough to stuff the interior of a Volkswagen Beetle from a camper in Berkeley County in 2014.
This job ended sweetly. The bees were relocated to a beekeeper, McCool said. So was about 40 pounds of honey.
