SPRING, Texas -- The owner of a Spring home has a big problem on his hands -- bees have moved in!

Nick Erskine came home to find the insects buzzing in and out of the siding of his home on Enchanted Hollow Lane.

But it was the neighbors who discovered the insects first.

"I was so scared," said Robbie Detho. "It looked like a shadow of bees."

The bees appeared to be swarming about, in fact there were so many, Detho was afraid to go outside.

In order to get outside to her car, she made a makeshift bee suit out of trash bags.

"I was running for my life, I'm telling you," said Detho, who also snapped pictures of the large amount of bees.

It doesn't appear that the insects have gotten into Erskine's home yet; he plans to call a beekeeper or exterminator to get rid of the insects.

"Bees in your garden, that's great, but bees in your walls, that's not so great," said Erskine.
