Why Can't You Find a Bear When You Need One?

Helen and Jerry Stathatos have a bit of a problem. They live in a lovely California home surrounded by beautiful gardens. Gardens that have attracted bees--lots and lots of bees. For years, the humans and insects have coexisted peacefully. But in the last few months, the bees have gotten a little out of control.

Seems thousands (if not millions) of bees made their homes inside the walls of the Stathatos's home. And now they're producing honey. Gallons and gallons and gallons of honey. The sticky substance has even started oozing out of the walls and dripping down the wallpaper. According to one bee expert, "You walk into the house and it smells sweet. I felt like I was in a jar of honey."

To add insult to injury, the owners can't even get to the delicious honey without knocking down their own walls!

Awwwwwwww... That's a bit sad. The bees in your walls are making honey, and it's dripping everywhere, but you can't even get to it without ripping down your house! :(

atleast they don't need a air refreshener to get rid of even worse smells! I would start licking the walls if I were them. XD
