Try placing outside your home on your deck; a fly zapper with a flourescent bulb in it, of a similar wavelength. I guess its warm where you are.

Follow up:

Honey bees and most insects inclusive are attracted to ultraviolet light (UV).

The basics of the flourescent tube will create all UV light of which is converted to visable (to us) light by phosphors inside the tube. A proportion of this is still UV and will attract insects.

Placing the fly-zapper outside will work to combat the problem as they are more attracted to the special UV type lights incorporated in them.

How is an incandescent light bulb different from a fluorescent light bulb?

An incandescent bulb differs from a fluorescent based on how it produces light. "Incandescent" means producing light through heat, this is essentially how an incandescent bulb lights. As current travels to the tungsten filament, the filament heats and lights up as the tungsten filament begins to deteriorate and eventually fail. Fluorescent bulbs produce light when current excites gasses inside the glass envelope. As the gasses get excited they emit photons. Interestingly, the light produced by a fluorescent bulb does not fall along the visible spectrum until it passes through the white, phosphor coating on the inside of the bulb. And there you have it.
