Seems like I got myself a group of Welfare Bee's......

They seem super happy simply sitting on the front porch taking it easy, while some bee's are going in and out working; many seem to be waiting for the mailman lol.....

Seriously should I be concerned?

I have no clue what's going on!

Check them out....

Looks normal to me. I sometimes see house bees sitting on landing boards to receive pollen and nectar from the foragers when they return. Others may be on guard duty.

I seldom get upset over a bee not working when they are going to be dead within weeks after they start going out to forage from plain wearing out wings and bodies.

normal, you will see more later in the summer. What is neat is when they start washboarding, you will have a group of bees moving back and forth. Sometimes they almost look like they are square dancing. Some hives do it a lot during the summer, some not at all.

It's just bees being bees. Don't borrow trouble. It's really a nice looking hive box with a great paint job. Remember the song lyrics. "don't worry, be happy."
