    Default Some fighting

    This swarm(s?) arrived yesterday (I’m in Curaçao).The bees seem to hesitate which box(es) to enter and there is some fighting of individuals. Any thoughts on this?

    If there is fighting then there are perhaps 2 groups of bees I.E. 2 swarms arrived at the same time.
    I have never seem a single swarm fight with itself.

    Somewhat a quess though.

    Let us know how it ends.

    I've had two swarms move in right next to each other like that and there was some fighting at first while they were getting organized.
