If your critters are bees, they are most likely vegetarian (ie. they eat pollen). It is the solitary wasps that eat caterpillars, etc.

dead in there with all those flies, then realized they were not flies,
they were bees. I think every bee in the county is nesting here.

I can't believe I have that many bad bugs to keep that population fed. I
still think I need to decrease the population..or at least transport
