Been feeding two new hives while they are drawing comb. Normally they take about a quart every two days, but today went in high mode sucking down two quarts each. Went to change it out and they normally comply, but they went ballistic this time. One in the elbow and one in the eyebrow. Had to go suit up to finish. Might have to put wire over the feeder openings to stop this from happening.

Could this aggression be from resources drying up around here? I still see pollen coming in, but there is little blooming right now.

I'll be on the lookout. I do feed inside the hive. Both hives were aggressive tonight. I just happened to dodge the first hive's aggression. I haven't noticed any fighting in front of the hive. I still have an entrance reducer on both hives. About 4" open right now.
