I was watching my girls today and i noticed that all hives seem to have their training flights happening around the same time (3pm)
Has anyone else ever noticed this? its almost if there was a certain time they have to do it.

I read its supposed to be the sign of a healthy hive, does that mean the more bees there are doing it the better the hive is?
