I have a beehive in our back yard that is totally thriving. At 8:30 in the morning yesterday bees were flying EVERYWHERE!!! Way up in the sky. It was amazing. I told my husband the bees were getting ready to swarm. (Been a beekeeper all of 2 months) Within an hour they where down on the outside of the hive. I was waiting for the rest of the bees to swarm out and fly as one. Didn't happen. Within a half hour they all went back in the hive. 1 1/2 hours total this went on. Next day, Sunday at 9:30 a.m. I was checking the hives through the back window and they seem to have less bees (Possibly swarmed without my notice) and they were moving inside the hive rapidly. It was uncommon for them and my husband who was watching the hive says "they're doing it again!" They poured out of the hive and flew way up in the air, flew back down on the hive and went back inside. This time the whole thing lasted 10 minutes! What's this all about??? Beekeepers I've asked have never heard of this. I really and truly was amazing to be among these fantastic bees at that time!
