[Bees! Though not the ones in the Queens apartment. These ones belong to Tony Bees.]

50,000 bees have been recovered from the ceiling of an Elmhurst apartment belonging to a woman with apparently sub-par hearing capabilities. 50,000. Bees. The discovery came after building neighbors complained about the budding infestation, leading the ever-heroic Anthony "Tony Bees" Planakis to uncover 17 honeycombs above Frieda Turkmenilli's home. ABC 7 says Turkmenilli noticed a bee here or there, but was "shocked" at the discovery, as well as saddened by the lost opportunity to pilfer honey. The bees and their 'combs have been moved to a farm upstate.
