Bees trying to make a home or cemetery in my worm farm bin. Advice?

Bees trying to make a home or cemetery in my worm farm bin. Advice?

Yesterday while I was out a horde of bees decided my DIY worm farm bin is a good place to die or to make a home.

When I came home , there was a bunch of them dead inside my worm farm bin.

Some are still alive.

Pictures are here. https://imgur.com/a/QyZ0BTk

I made the bin's breathing holes smaller in size with strings but this seems to fail to stop them getting inside.

Please advise why these bees think it is a good idea.

How to get rid of them?

I am thinking of burning mosquito coils inside to make them go away.

What kind of bee is it? Typical harmless honey bee , or the dangerous kind?

Thank you very much.

P.S.:

I am in the southern hemisphere.

We are in Spring right now.

Summer coming soon.

I did not have this bee problem during the winter in the last few months.

I left the bin lid open hoping they will go away and they are still flying inside.

Nothing for them to eat inside , just some fertilizer.

P.P.S.:

Here is another picture of the worm farm bin opened under the sun.

This still hasn't make them go away.

No hive set up. No idea how to manage bees.
