Narcissus and bees

We keep bees ( 3 hives) and I can't recall seeing any on any outdoor
narcissus, however, on warm January days, they frequent the winter hoop
varieties like N. romieuxii and N. cantabricus in the greenhouse. They enter
through the vents in the roof, but then cannot escape once the vents close.
We always lose a good number this way.
