I don't see bees going out with her. Even when she fly out there is no bee going after her because her
speed is just too fast. The buzz sound is louder than a worker bee but lower than a drone bee. I got a
vid on her took off while I was messing with the frame that she was on.
She usually does her mating flight alone in the warm afternoon and come back in early evening before the sunset.
She will do this about 3 days or more depending if the weather cooperate
and there are enough drones out there to complete her process.
