We have two hives. Hive A started as the strong hive, more bees this spring. Hive B was the smaller with fewer. As the honey flow has been going on, the roles have reversed significantly, in fact hive B has 3 shallow supers near full and hive A only about a super and a half. My husband and I have seen large groups of bees flying around in front of our hives occasionally, but they don't seem to be 'fighting'. Last time we inspected hive A, about a month ago, the population seemed to be fine as well as brood pattern. Should we inspect again, give them some frames or a whole honey super from hive B? Worried about the girls in HiveA!

No fighting, large group of bees, seems like Orientation flights to me. Robbing is accompanied by major warfare from my understanding. G

They might just be slower workers. If they already have 1.5 supers of honey, I would leave them alone. G
