    Default Drones coming and going

    Is it normal for drones to routinly come and go from the hive? If so what do they do out and about?

    I think so . I noticed drones coming and going at my hives, they may just be out looking for a queen but more likely they are driven out and just want back in for the free food.

    Drones fly to areas called Drone Congregation Areas where they fly a holding pattern and wait for the virgin queens to appear. Their flights are usually 30 to 40 minutes long before they return to rest and refuel for the next flight.
