Got home today around 1:30 and was worried that there was some swarming going on. I had just inspected 1 week ago and all looked grand. Added a medium super, and opened things up for the queen.
As I walked to the colonies, I noticed just a huge amount of bees at the entrances ( I still have the reducers on ).
It looked as though some of the bees were crawling under the SBB, and out the back! Many were drones...Is is usual to see drones flying this time of year?
Should I take the entrance reducers off?
