    Frieda Turkmenilli says she'd noticed 'a few' bees buzzing around her apartment in Queens, NY. But it was her neighbors who complained to authorities, and only then did Frieda discover she had an estimated 50,000 of the little critters living in her ceiling.

    The bees, along with the 17 honeycombs they'd produced, were removed and taken to a new forever home at a bee farm.

    Frieda says she kinda misses the little guys.

    So that's what happened to all of the honeybees!

    I've read about the bees making their homes in human residences before. One of those instances was at a cabin in Utah:

    It's pretty costly to have the bees professionally (safely) removed, but IMO it's worth every penny to save these little guys.

    That hive was actually outside of the cabin -- in the eaves -- but some were getting indoors.

    Then, there were around 75,000 honeybees discovered living in the ceiling and walls of a chapel in Massachusetts:

    We had a swarm take over the front of our house back in the mid-70's. We made the news...cool; the critters were making their way into the space between the floors...not cool. Hard to sleep wondering if you are going to be taken away by angry bees at any moment.

    Professionals came out and removed the bees to a "home in the country." (Wait...that's the same thing my parents told me when my goldfish disappeared. :thinking: )
