OK, I swear, this is my last post...Just getting all my questions out at once. So, I haven't checked the hives in a couple weeks, (I put the bees in on April 10th and as of a couple weeks ago I saw lots of emerging bees), because I thought I should leave them alone and relax a bit. I was, however, going to this weekend, but intermittently, the hives (specifically one of them) were soooo outrageously active with sooo many bees on the outside that it sort of freaked me out. They were not bearding, but just in almost a cloud, around the entrance. I would check a bit later and they seemed to ebb and flow in the numbers that were out buzzing around. It wasn't the more constant dozen or so. I thought maybe it was because it was a bit warmer and sunnier than it had been and maybe they were cooling off, but, really never got above 70 or so. It was, however, remarkably more noticeable of a phenomena in the hive that is more directly in the sun. However, I did notice it once in the hive that is more shaded. Just once in that one, though. Thoughts!?!
