(Scroll down for video) A woman in New York, was shocked to learn that thousands of bees were living in her home and producing a massive amount of honey.

26-year-old Stuart Mulzac of Brooklyn, said that his mother, Cherisse Mulzac, became concerned after her allergic neighbor got stung by a bee and honey was dripping from her ceiling.

It all began several weeks ago, when Cherisse found dead bees on the floor of her home located on East 21st Street in the Flatbush section of Brooklyn.

This week, Cherisse called 52-year-old bee rescuer Mickey Hegedus. Hegedus came to the home with special equipment.

He cut a hole in the ceiling, where he found 35,000 bees along with 70 pounds of honey. He sucked the bees out of the ceiling with special vacuum to keep them alive.

Hegedus then relocated the bees to his house, where keeps them in the backyard.

Cherisse kept some of the honey to herself after Hegedus told her that it was 100 percent natural and better than farmed as the flowers in the city have no pesticides.

Hegedus believes that the bees got into Cherisse’s home through a missing brick in the exterior wall. He estimates that the bees were living in the home for about 7 weeks.
