    Default Some bees work! Some bees bask in the sun ?

    Whats up with this. I currently have 8 hive on my property. 7 hive all come out and sit on the front porch to soak up some sun and wait for an easy sting ( probably fanning ) but still not bringing anthing in. But I have a hive about 100 yards away and they don't sit on the front porch they use is as a landing gear for bringing in arm loads of yellow luggage, one bee right after another all day long. Now someone tell me what difference is here?

    Are the seven full of honey? In my commercial operation, I would never let the hives get full. When the third box up was half full, I would slide a super under it and come back and pull it off in 3 or 4 days. Keep them thinking they have to store more. On the other hand, I took a swarm off a Govt. building. That hive would never make honey in a yard where others were hauling it in. I think they thought they were on welfare. Or were getting ready to run for Congress.
