Newbie beek here, consciously reading all the books and all the potential disasters (is there such a thing as bee hypochondria? By proxy?) and I’ve been wondering whether my bees are getting robbed. Many of the robbing signals mentioned in the books’ checklists are present.
I haven’t seen any actual fighting, but it’s a brand new colony, maybe the guards haven’t caught on to the robbing? The bottom hive body was added recently (the top one is nearly full).
All advice welcome! Should I reduce the entrance farther? Open it up more? Dance naked around the hive?
You tell me…
