    Are these just orientation flights? I've never seen this many doing it and once and so many crawling on the front of the hive. New queen must have laid a ton of eggs if they're all new bees orientating. It's very hot out today in Cocoa beach. It's in the 90s. I've though of adding another blank bar, but they still haven't filled out all the bars. Is everything fine? I don't think they're crowded... All the bars have some comb but the outside bars aren't filled out far at all so I was going to wait to add a new one . I've never seen this much activity outside the hive.
