I was wondering if someone could explain the presence of a whole bunch of dead bees in my bedroom.
Last Friday and again yesterday I found 20 to 30 dead bees on the floor. Two or three were still moving a bit (I put those in the sun on the window sill).
They were lying under an open window.
I’ve been wondering if they came out of nests I failed to see and couldn’t find a way out or if they were outside and somehow found their way inside and couldn’t leave again.
I’ve noticed in previous years that these bees love to use the convenient little holes in my Ivar shelves to lay their eggs, but when this happened the holes had been closed and remnants of the “sealant” were still visible after they had left. I have Ivar shelves in my bedroom, but I couldn’t find anything like that in my bedroom.
I’d also like to know your thoughts on what caused their death and if there is something I can do to avoid this.
