CONCORD, N.C., June 16 (UPI) -- A North Carolina man says he found out he was sharing his home with about 60,000 bees after he noticed honey oozing out a wall.
Mark Jones said he learned about the bees after tasting a mysterious liquid coming out of a wall in his Concord, N.C., home.
He was surprised to find out the liquid was honey produced by thousands of bees living behind the wall, WYFF-TV in Greenville, S.C., reported.
"I came over here and dipped my finger in it and tasted it. Sure enough, it was honey coming out of the wall," Jones said.
Beekeepers removed most of the insects with a vacuum Sunday after Jones and his wife decided it wasn't right to kill them, the newspaper said.
Keepers said the leftover bees will leave soon because they no longer have a hive there.
