    Hi Aztec, I grew up in Hartsville used to live in apartments behind the race track there in Darlington. Just leave them alone, those are more than likely scouts checking things out. The will do this numerous times before they decide they like it or not. When they don't leave for a couple of days you are set. Do you have lemongrass or old comb in them? If they are checking them out leave them alone though.
    All beekeepers can agree on one thing, and that one thing is, that all beekeepers can't agree on one thing.
