So apparently the attracting bees are simply too dangerous to use. They work fine until suddenly the node is just too close to another node underground that you didn't even know existed .....and then the node you're moving just gets deleted. Poof.
Knowing how nodes work the one you've moved hasn't be deleted, it's merged with the underground one and grown in size. You should be able to still manipulate the bigger node.
