Un-bee-lievable: 50,000 bees living in NY ceiling

A Queens woman had some unexpected roommates living in her apartment: 50,000 bees.

NEW YORK (AP) — A Queens woman had some unexpected roommates living in her apartment: 50,000 bees.

WABC-TV reports (http://7ny.tv/1whc4PZ ) beekeepers removed the super swarm from Frieda Turkmenilli's ceiling this week after her neighbors alerted the building manager.

Turkmenilli says she saw only a few bees buzzing around over the last few weeks and never realized how many had taken up residence right above her head.

The beekeepers say the bees and the 17 honeycombs they built are headed to an upstate farm.

Turkmenilli says she already misses them and wishes they had left behind some honey.
