80,000 bees found inside couple's bedroom wall

A couple living in the Spanish town of Pinos Puente had been unable to sleep due to the loud buzzing sound.
The gargantuan hive was discovered after a bee expert was called in to investigate the noise.

When Sergio Guerrero arrived on the scene, he found a hive so extensive that it had filled up the entire wall cavity with honeycombs measuring up to a meter across.

"I can't understand how [the homeowners] have been living with that number of bees for two years," he said. "That would have left them with a constant buzz in their ears."
Even with the use of specialized equipment, it took several hours to relocate the bees.

Guerrero reports that he has removed as many as half a million bees in total so far this year.

Very good that they were relocated and not killed. All it takes is 1 chemical on 1 bee to take down the whole hive, they transfer things very easily to each other. I've done pest control in the past and learned alot about them, they also have the strongest sense of smell on earth but they are in decline which is actually a global issue or at least it will turn into 1

For animals, bears have the top distance sense of smell, at 18 miles. For insects, "The champion smeller of the insect world is the male silkmoth. He can scent his ladylove as far away as 6 miles or more, and he can detect as few as one or two of her pheromone scent particles at that distance. " For bees, it's 2+ miles away. EDIT: The rest of your post is fine. Sources: https://animals.mom.me/creature-sense-smell-3339.html https://beekeepercenter.com/can-bees-smell/

I should of stated an all around sense of smell. They know where to extract from at long distances. Bees help the eco system in a very important way. A moth smelling his partner is not what I meant but interesting thanks for the info

Yes, when I encounter a bumble bee I leave it alone, or, if it gets into my house, I capture and release (which I've done) Like you said, they are very important. Now a wasp, on the other hand, I will kill on sight.
