inspecting my hive yesterday the bee's started signaling and attacking each outher the activity around the hive increased along with the noise level. this hive is new from package this year and no surrounding colonies. I have not seen this on prior inspection, they did calm down after about an hour. any suggestions as to why this happened?
Sure it wasn't robbers?
their is no other colony near that I know of, the activity was all from within the top box and bottom box when I seperated them.
