Today finally picked up and installed my packages. All went well, was a lot more fun then I thought. They did poop a lot early on. Will a security light on them at night bother them? Thanks for those who have answered my questions.

My hive is right outside my front door with a motion sensor light and I have found that it does cause some issues for the bees. I've watched them fly at it all night long and in the morning, I will have dead bees on the ground. I've ended up turning my light off when it is not in use.
