The wild hive is located on a tree in the backyard of a New Port Richey home and is estimated to have around 30,000 bees inside, WFTS reports.

On Sunday, several people attempted to extract honey from the hive and were attacked by a swarm of bees. Three men were taken to a local hospital with over 50 stings, while a woman who was with them is recovering at home with over a dozen bee stings.

Firefighters responded to the attack and were able to clear the bees from the area with a fire hose. A beekeeper is currently working on safely moving the hive’s honeycomb and bees to a new location where they won’t be bothered by locals.

Until the relocation is complete, Pasco County honey lovers are being warned to stay away from the hive.
