At my parents house about 2 weeks ago bees started appearing in the basement. I think my Dad found the hole where they were coming in and plugged it up but in those 2 weeks about 300+ bees came into the basement (not all at once, just over the course of the 2 weeks). Why would they decide to go into the basement?
Most of them acted like moths because they were attracted to the lights and what would happen is they would spend most of their time flying at the light, which made it easy to spray them. Is that a the reason they started coming into the basement, because they are attracted to lighting? We have no flowers in our basement so that can’t be a motive. Is it possible the queen got stuck in the basement and all the bees are looking for her?
Today while I was outside I saw the hole that my Dad plugged that led to the basement and about 2 or 3 bees were flying around it trying to get in. So they still want in but I can’t figure out why as that hole has been there for 30 years and this has never happened before.
