Bees generally go through a series of positions within the hive, such as nurse bee, guard bee, forage bee, etc.

Does anyone know if there is actually a "robber Bee" phase to a bee's life? Or is it an opportunity type thing. Or do bees actually leave a hive as a robber with the intentions of going after another hive?

I hear some say that one type or another is prone to robbing, which if true, would lend to believe that genetics may play a part. But I'm not sure if it's true, or just casual observations, that seemingly gets repeated.


Thank you.
