    Whenever I open the top to fill the feeders, many lurkers rush in to get some, and end up trapped in the hive. Are these incorporated or are they killed?

    It could really go either way, but most likely they will be kicked to the curb.

    I hope they join---one of my little swarm hives needs extra workers..HAha!...Really, they are waiting for me when I go out in the mornings....all anxious to get in and feed. At least I'm not seeing any dead bees up there....Thanks G3
