I am a new beekeeper. I installed 3 packages in April of 2013...2 langstroth hives and 1 top bar hive. In May I caught a swarm and put it into a langstroth hive as well. The hives seem to be very strong. So with 4 hives in the yard we have lots of activity but there has never been an issue with bees around the house, garage, pool...etc. Last weekend my husband was in the garage getting some tools and he noticed aprox. 60 bees on an a hive top feeder that had never been used. They were flying around him in a way that made him nervous and he lit a smoker to clear the area and get his tools. By the time I got home they weren't there but I did see bees flying in and out of the garage. They weren't landing...just flying in circling around and flying back out. So it seems that every evening they are acting pretty bazaar. Yesterday we had bees congregated at the back door (maybe 12), I was unloading groceries and left my car door open, when I went back to shut it there were 10 or so flying around in my car. They fly up to us and just circle us or land on our clothes. I watch them trying to figure out what they are doing but I can't figure it out! It just seems that they are confused. Has anyone experienced this?
