bees attracted to lights

hello. I friend of mine, and brand new beekeeper, is having problems with her bees. she tells me that she can not go into her backyard at night because when she turns her porch light on, the bees from her one hive just flock to her light. she also has floodlights in her backyard, and she said that if she turns on the floodlights, the bees go to it and catch on fire....  has anyone dealt with this??I have 3 hives in my backyard, have 2 porch lights and also floodlights but have never had this…See More
