i have one hive in an urban area, italians who seem to be doing really well. i inspected Friday and they have drawn out 6 frames since May 25 installation, and i'm very careful with them so i have yet to even be stung! my question is---since I installed on May 25, it is getting about the time that new bees should be emerging...and Sunday this weekend, I noticed a lot of bees buzzing me out in my front yard, pretty far away from the hive, while i was washing the car/powerwashing the driveway. these bees seemed to be warning me, too...not doing foraging flights. i figured that maybe they were new bees and doing orientation flights or something....but i had them buzzing me right in my face, loudly, and they were VERY persistent (to the point where i HAD to swat at them). my question is---is my theory correct---could they have been newborn bees doing orientation flights (do they do that?) or why did i suddenly have bees buzzing me, warning me, so far from the hive and during normal, everyday activities? it was not in their flight path and it's concerning me a bit.
