    Question

    I am a rookie, tolerate stupid questions from me.
    I was watching the comings and goings at the hive entrance yesterday and noticed that many of the bees leaving the hive to go forage on asters seem to tumble out onto the landing board.
    They seem to fall out. Some land on their back.
    they quickly right themselves and go about their business
    I have two deep supers on and have not looked into the lower one in a while.
    Is this normal?

    As long as they aren't crawling around looking like they can't fly I wouldn't sweat it. Sounds normal.
