Caused by the bees being able to smell the queen pharamones through the screen. If you have the bottom boards that allow for a sticky board it may be a good idea to put them in for a while till the hives are up and running with brood. Too much air flow can cause them to abscond at times due to the queen's pharamones not being heavy enough in the hive.
