Sometimes problems are cannibals and eat each other up
My mom was walking in our neighborhood recently when she met a neighbor who told her about the house problems she'd been having. The neighbor had noticed some marks on the wall above her fireplace mantel. She said to a contractor, "What are these? It's not water." He cut out a five foot section of her wall and found a bee hive that went the length of the fireplace. Behind it was the petrified body of a rat. Its teeth were embedded in a wire which had electrocuted it and started a fire. But the honey had put out the fire, thus saving the house.
