Few people can tolerate having a bee in their house for a few hours — let a lone a handful of years! Yet, this is exactly what a Chinese family has allowed for over a decade.
For 12 long years, Yongfu Li and his family, who live in Gunagnan, China, have allowed an entire hive to nest in their wooden furniture. The unusual roommate situation benefits all involved, as Li collects the honey and sells it three times a year for a small profit.
Li says the bees moved in the day there was a wedding in the family. The bees gathered at the family’s house and Li perceived their presence as a “good omen.” After consulting with Feng Shui masters, he was convinced it was right to let them stay, so he did.
“The day these bees came was a great day (the wedding), I think they knew it was a great day,” said Li. “Fengshui masters said they came to work for me.”
Three times a year, Li collects about 5 kg of honey from the hive. He then sells the honey for about 100 TMB ($15) a pound. that’s about $450 a year, as Oddity Central reports. Though the video by Pear (below) doesn’t mention any bee stings, we can only image some have occurred over the years.
