A swarm of bees made an unexpected landing in the front yard of a Clovis family of six Wednesday. At first the Grieco family was frightened but later became frustrated with the insect problem.
Eight hundred to a thousand bees formed what looked like a football shape swarm on a big branch on the Griecos' front yard tree. After working the phone for more than an hour they discovered no one wanted to haul away their uninvited guests.
Stacy and Tom Grieco have four daughters and they were concerned about their safety going in and out of their home. They called the City of Clovis, Fresno State and bee farmers for help. But no one seemed interested about their problem. Stacy says a few offered advice. "They just said spray Raid on it and it will dissipate. They said it will go away in about an hour."
