    Default Forager Question

    I see lots of activity all day of incoming/outgoing foragers, very busy. Are the returning foragers bringing in something (water, sap for propolis, nectar, pollen) or do they return empty if they don't find anything to bring back? Curious if they are taking a break if empty and filling up on nectar or honey before trying again?

    Yes, if you see a large number of bees going in and out they are onto something. If any return empty it would be but a few I suspect.
