In my tree rescue hive that was HEAVY on drones... I now find that I have a lot of drones stumbling around in the long grass about 3-5 feet from the hive (to the side, not the front). Great for the baby (4 year old) as I keep giving her a couple to play with but they don't last long. She isn't too rough with them and she feeds them tortilla chips and everything. But I'm curious about the drones that are stumbling around outside the main area.
