Woman Spots Honey Running Down Her Walls; Finds 35,000 Bees Living In Ceiling
If you spot something running down the walls of your house, then I’m pretty sure that the next few minutes are going to resemble a horror movie and this is exactly what happened to Cherisse Mulzac over in Flatbush, New York.

Cherisse spotted a strange, sticky substance dripping down her wall that she realised on closer inspection was in fact honey. She called in a beekeeper and what happened next was absolutely crazy: he cut a four foot hole in the roof to unleash 35,000 bees.
Fortunately, this story didn’t have a Wicker Man style ending and both Cherisse and the beekeeper were OK – 52-year-old Mickey Hegedus managed to suck them into a box via a low pressure vacuum and rehouse them at the hives in his back garden. Here’s what he had to say about the experience:
It was a big shock.
I think the bees would have been there for two years or so without her realising and by the time I went there last week there must have been 35,000 there.
I haven’t seen anything this big in a long time and I have never pulled them out with that much honey.
I had to be very careful that it didn’t just all come crashing out. It was a slow process – it took about six hours.
Cherisse kept most of it. I took a lot out and I kept around 20lbs for the bees because they needed some of it back.
I mean there you have it – if a professional bee keeper says it’s a scary unprecedented situation then you’ve really got to believe them haven’t you?
I can’t even imagine how distraught I would be if it turned out 35,000 bees had been living above me – would probably move out straight away even once they had gone. Sounds like Cherisse just chilled and got the honey though, baller.
