A woman and her 50,000 roommates

This news story is getting a lot of buzz around the country.

A New York City woman recently discovered she wasn't living alone in her apartment. She had about 50,000 roommates. Bees. And they were living in her ceiling.

Beekeepers removed the swarm from Frieda Turkmenilli's ceiling last week after her neighbors in Queens alerted the building manager. Turkmenilli says she saw only a few bees buzzing around over the last few weeks.

Fortunately, beekeepers were able to move them, and 17 honeycombs, to an upstate farm.

Turkmenilli says she misses the bees and wishes they had left behind some honey. I think they should have, too. Do you know how much honey costs at the grocery store these days?!

If you've got a story about bees, email me at toverlie@kttc.com. Have a great day!
