This week I have seen 3 western honey bees hanging around my porchlight. Which isn’t in itself that strange. Bees are attracted to light. But tonight I watched one intentionally fly into it, clearly get burned, take a break and then keep doing it until it died. I didn’t want to interfere with it, in case it had something wrong with it that might cause it to be aggressive towards me. I’ve had this bright light for years and only recently seen honey bees hanging around it.
I read that there are parasites that can cause a been to behave strangely.
I just want to know if anyone else has seen this or if anyone knows what it means.
