Sorry for photo.....these bugs are bigger than a bee. Darker too. They've shown up afternoon

The pic is a little blurry but I can make out three drones. Is that what you are speaking of?
The two bees in flight near the landing board are drones. Big eys, rounded bottoms. Make a lot of noise when they fly. If your drones are lighter, these may be visitors. Drones from other apiaries are welcomed in most hives until late summer.
