I guess this couple got the feeling of what it would be like to live in a beehive.

Could be an interesting way to be self sufficient in honey. Although I am not sure I would feel safe with light bulbs blowing up because they were half filled with honey.

Here is the story.

Great story, Adrien. I'm so glad they eventually called in beekeepers instead of pest control.

Reminds me of the bees in Jacqueline and Joseph's house at Friendly Haven Rise Farm - though their hive settled in a far wall that didn't drip into any light bulbs. (Jacequline talks about it in podcast 202 or podcast 203 - can't recall which one.)

I remember hearing the story, but I don't know either where in the 2 podcasts this was mentioned.

Was there any honey oozing from the walls or just the buzzing?

I don't think there was honey oozing, but Jacqueline mentioned putting her ear to the wall (in the winter or when she didn't want to go outside?) and finding the hive sounds very comforting - it made her very happy.
