New Yorkers are used to finding all kinds of, er, little critters living in their apartments, but pretty much nothing compares to this. A woman in Elmhurst, Queens, began noticing a few bees buzzing around her apartment over the past few weeks — and then eventually learned that there were 50,000 of them living in her ceiling, local ABC affiliate WABC-TV reports.

Fifty. Thousand. Bees. Living. In. Her. Ceiling. Everything. Is. Awful.

“How did they get there? Where did they come from?” the woman, Frieda Turkmenilli, told WABC. “I was shocked.”

Well, yeah. If this happened to us, we’d totally pull a Nic Cage and be all, “NOOOO, NOT THE BEES.”

Anyway, two beekeepers were recruited to come remove the bees and relocate them — along with the 17 (!!!) honeycombs they managed to build — to a bee farm.

So next time you see a roach scuttling beneath your door or a mouse darting behind your fridge, remember: it could be way worse.
