Woman captures swarm of bees on doorbell camera

Who’s that at the front door setting

off the security camera? Oh, right,

just a swarm of bees.

This has been the reality for Gilbert, Arizona,

resident Keli Harper since the end of April.

Evidently, so many bees have taken

up residence outside of her family’s

front door that they’ve even started

setting off the security camera.

“When I checked the cameras, I literally

could not even see my front porch. It

just seemed like there was so many —

thousands of them,” Harper told CBS 5.

When the bees aren’t swarming around and

setting off the security camera, they’re often

clumped together in a giant, terrifying mass.

“I’m looking at an area of three feet, and

it looks like a bad paint job with texture

because there’s so many of them,” Harper said.

Evidently, the cluster of bees

has made it hard for Harper

to get deliveries.

Through her security camera, she’s

seen FedEx and UPS drivers run away

from her front porch upon realizing

what the textured mass is.

“I was speechless. My heart was

pounding so much. I just couldn’t even

— I was afraid to even go to the

door,” Keli’s son Austin said.

Thankfully, Harper was able to find

a beekeeper to safely remove the

bees. All in all, there were “almost

three pounds” of them
