I have honey bees that come out at night and fly around my porch lights. This has been going on for quite some time. Why do they do this?

If a streetlight or porch light is bright enough, bees will fly in the light shed by the lamp, most often, directly toward the light.

I've heard of beekeepers working at night standing in front of the headlights of a tractor or truck to get the bee's off!
