bees outside the hive

  1. Beekeeping 101
    On hot days i can see why bees would cluster at opening of the hive. Cooling I think. Today it is in the 60s and some bees are still clustered outside the hive. They have plenty of room to grow inside. So tell me what causes that type of behavior?

    I have two Beemax hives and two Langstroth 8 frame hives, c. Can someone tell me what this activity indicates ?
