At first i thought i was being robbed,so in panic mode i reduced entrances and hoped for the guard bees to pull double duty,but after a couple of afternoons of my instinct to meddle and noticing the time, sun position and activity on the front porch its orientation flights and what an amazing thing to watch,and like my title says it really is like clockwork,between 4.30pm and 5.00pm my Italian ladies buzz the front doors for about 30 minuets then i get a about an hour break then the carnys start.I couldn't think of a better way to unwind after work than watch mother nature at her finest.

Hoping that is what I have going on. Put up some hardware cloth to slow them down if they were robbers and they seem to just crawl through, so hoping it is just orientation flights.

Guess I need to pull up a lawn chair and watch.

Tonysea - Glad your not getting robbed out.
