Do the bees keep working through the night? Cell builders, queen laying, cleaning?
I know that they don't forage at night.

In my observation hive, they take rest periods where the whole hive gets quiet for awhile. This can happen day or night. I do seem to hear a nice buzz most mornings. My OB is covered, but the cover does pass a limited amount of light. The entrance tube is over a foot long and curved, so virtually no light comes from the entrance. When I have syrup on the hive, they definitely work at night.
