First query from a newcomer. It has been a very hot day here in Southern Australia & there are a couple of small clusters of bees on the front of the hive just above the entrance. The family have been very vigorous since I acquired them having taken off about 60 lbs of honey until a month ago.
Would this event be something to be concerned about or is it something to do with the hot day?.
On other hot days there have been a lot of bees out around the entrance but not in the tight small clusters.
Congrats on the great sight,
