A neighborhood in South Florida is asking for help after a swarm of more than 2 million bees was found at a nearby vacant house, according to a Local 6 News report.

An elderly man who lived inside the South Miami home died last year. And since his death, the house has deteriorated and become overrun with bees.

Neighbor Kim Perretta said every time her family leaves their home in the morning, they're greeted by a swarm of bees.

Perretta said her son is allergic to insect stings, and is concerned about his safety.

"When we would get up in the morning and they would all leave the hive, it would be like a curtain -- a curtain of bees," Perretta said.

South Miami Acting City Manager Yvonne Soler-McKinley said city officials are currently trying to figure out how to resolve the problem.

The beekeeper was expected to go to the abandoned home Tuesday, according to the report.
