I went out to take a look at my freshly hived nuc today. It was around 2:00 and around 87 degrees outside. As I went up to the hive bees were everywhere, all over the front of the hive and flying around the front. I was not sure whether they were trying to abscond or what as there were ants going in and out of the top feeder. I lifted off my top to reveal the top feeder and then a few minutes later added the lid back and then everything seemed fine the bees returned and went to normal work.
So does this sound like absconding or just them trying to cool the hive on a hot day?
