HIGHLANDS RANCH - A homeowner found a disturbing discovery in their Highlands Ranch home.

About 40,000 bees are being removed on Tuesday from the home.

According to beekeeper Greg McMahan, these bees produced about 20 pounds of honey and have been in this hive for about three months.

McMahan said the queen in the hive is about to slow down her laying of eggs. Her production will drop from a typical 1,200 eggs a day to laying just a handful a day by the end of October.
