a sudden absence of bees

Long and sultry nights...in space

It's been a long time since high school science and I'm blanking. Embarrassingly so.

Googled: planet rotation, axial tilt, sun angle, various combinations thereof.

Is it possible for a given region of a planet to have longer nights than days, all year round?

EDIT: I love you guys. I think I'm going to go with the "multiple sources of light/moon orbiting a planet" scenario—thanks for all the great ideas!
