19. The Missing Bees Have Been Found!
Mark and Amy Jones discovered their home in Concord, N.C., had 60,000 clandestine tenants living rent-free but instead of taking the squatters to court, they found them new accommodations.

Acting on a report from their tenant that the 100-year-old home had honey oozing from a wall in a vacant upstairs bedroom, the couple did a little detective work and discovered a massive honeybee haven 2 feet wide and 6 feet long, nestled into the wall.

The honey was seeping out of the wall, Mark Jones told Matt Lauer on TODAY. I actually tasted it. I heard the buzzing in the wall it was obvious that it looked like honey, smelled like honey, tasted like honey.

Mark admitted the renter was a little nervous about that. But the Joneses, married for three years, were adamant that the bees werent to receive a death sentence. Bees are pretty important to the environment when it comes to pollination and things like that, so we didnt feel that we should kill them, Mark said. /
