To be brief... No.
they also will kill to do so
I am still learning to identify robbing. Happened across this article. Tells what they rob, how to spot it, prevent it, etc.

Starving bees will eat eggs in their own hive - at least I think I read that on the internet. It must be true. If so, robbing could cause eggs to be eaten.
I made a robber screen and installed it last night just before dark. Talk about alot of confused girls. I read on here that the workers living in the hive would have no problem finding their way back in if shut in for the night. Well I have hundreds of bees trying to get in today. Lots are robbers, but several have filled pollen baskets so I assume they are residents of the hive. Robbers dont carry in pollen do they? About 5 per minute are actually finding their way in. Lots of bees inside the screen trying to get out. Maybe 1-2 per minute are successful.
