    How do you tell the difference from standing outside the hive?

    Orientation flights will feature a small or large cloud of bees (depending on the size of the hive) flying in organized little circles. Most will be facing the hive.

    Robbing will include a disorganized mass of bees flying around erratically. They will also be quite unhappy. There will also be bees falling off of the bottom board curled up fighting each other.
