OK. I have been watching my hive entrance--too much!
Do your bees come out of their entrance on to the porch and wipe their heads, eyes, etc with their front legs and fly off??? I am feeding with a top feeder so I guess my real question is, would bees robbing this hive come out and wipe their faces after filling up on syrup and fly off to their hive?? My other hive is so active that I have not stop to look for the behavior there. They're been fed too.
