Most folks probably think Texans would have a simple way to handle a major insect infestation: Kill them varmints.
But officials at the University of Houston are bucking the stereotype when it comes to a colony of up to 100,000 bees that have taken up residence inside a classroom building.
They hired a beekeeper and on Wednesday he gently and humanely removed the beehive so it can be relocated to a better home on a wooded part of campus.
Although no one has reported being stung yet, school officials said they couldn't take any chances.
