How do I tell if the bees coming into the hive are full of nectar and belong to the hive or if they are empty and coming in to rob?
I installed (at about 2pm.)a 3# package into a hive with about ten frames of honey and pollen. Within 2 hours there seemed to be alot of bees coming in and out of the hive. Some were just circling (Orientation flights?), but many were flying away.
Am I being robbed or is this package very active?
