Bees evicted from home, leave two tons of honey to cover rent7/30/2012
Honey dripping from the ceiling was the only clue Loretta Yates had that bees had taken over her home in Ontario, Canada. Evidence like that, though, is fairly compelling and rather than collect the sticky sweetener and make her fortune selling it from her patio, she called in the experts to investigate. Further inspection revealed the kitchen light cover was half filled with honey, just a fraction of the estimated 2,000 pounds she had in her attic from two colonies totaling around 180,000 bees. The bees, along with a nest of bastardly yellow jacket wasps, apparently chewed through the wall to get in. “You'd hardly believe it was bees. It was just like a blanket,” Mrs Yates said. Beekeepers plan to deal with the mess by kidnapping the queens and hoping the masses follow her. [Source]
What would you do with all that honey?
