    Does fighting always indicate robbing? or do bees fight for other reasons....

    Scout bees fight over bait hives and even kill each other, sometimes by the dozens.

    Just like anything else in life, sometimes there doesnt have to be a specific reason and it does not always indicate robbing!

    I've seen bees from one hive put up their middle metatarsal as other hive bees fly by. That usually starts it.
