I installed robbing screens on my 4 hives today. I mistakenly open fed a wet super a few hundred yards away yesterday. It created a frenzy. I think I caught it in time and covered the wet super. I reduced all hive entrances too. There seems to be normal traffic at all 4 today. Two of them are already using the top entrance of the robbing screen. The other two have the screen covered with bees trying to get in. They're not fighting like robbers, just on the screen like they're confused. There is slow traffic thru the top entrance of the RS, but not enough have learned yet. It started raining so I cracked open a sliding screen main entrance to allow them in. But, I don't want to leave that open for long as it bypasses the robber screen. I'm leaning toward closing it back up tonight so they can only exit thru the top entrance of the RS tomorrow morning and be persuaded to learn. Thoughts?
