Just unloaded a box of bees out of the back of the truck and within 10 min this is where the stragglers decided to congregate

Any idea why they would do that, it sounded like.they went in deep too. It had to be hot in there it had ran for 20 min prior. I wish I could have gotten it on video when I started the truck and blew them out
When it is cold, do you have noticeable moisture in your exhaust? My bees have been obsessed with the moist edges of a pile of sheet-metal in my yard and with the metal valve on the end of our water hose. Before I can use the water-hose, I have to brush the bees off of the end. I think they are after what ever is in the corrosion.
Even if that is the case where were they planning on taking what they found, I can only assume they just saw a dark hole and went for it. I have moved hives before and normally they would just cluster on the tailgate or something so that is why it seems so crazy to me
