      Flowers that are in front of a bee nest/hive prevent the bees inside from leaving it. This is not the case in Java Edition.

      Steps to Reproduce:

      1. Place a bee nest/hive
      2. Place a flower in front of it
      3. Spawn 3 bees
      4. Wait for the bees to go inside the nest/hive
      5. Once they are inside, wait for a few minutes

      Observed Results:
      The bees never leave their nest/hive.

      Expected Results:
      Bees should be able to leave their nest/hive when a flower is in front of it.

      Original Description:
      Bees do not leave their hives or nests if it is not in direct sunlight. I experienced the bug when i updated to 1.16.100 and I noticed that my bee farm don't produce honey and beeswax. I checked the hives and there are no bees coming out. There are 68 beehives in my farm and none of those left their houses. Each hives contain 3 bees. Also, I did manage the bees to leave their hives by simply breaking the hive with a silktouch axe. Also, i noticed when there is a direct sunlight, the bees would actually leave their hives just like what it is intended to do. I breaked and placed all of the hives at nighttime and I expected at morning it to work. Unfortunately, after I slept, all of the bees maintain to be in their hives even at daytime. I need to stock-up some beeswax for the upcoming 1.17 update that brings candles into the game. I hope this gives you enough information and fix the bug as soon as possible. Anyway, stay safe guys! Happy Holidays!
