Do you ever wonder when feeding bees outside the hive, in this case cappings, when they fight,...
is it only fighting other bees off or fighting also amongst themselves??
Do they really "hurt" other bees??

Is this a Varroa on the abdomen?

It's a free-for-all. Anyone can join in, even when it's all bees from the same hive. It can get ugly when there isn't enough to go around.

Yes. Some sustain critical injuries.
