My main bee yard has 12 colonies of varying sizes. My 2 other locations have 3 colonies each. I notice in all these yards there is always 1 booming hive going gangbusters and some hives that just "maintain". Has anyone else noticed this? This is my 3rd year and it always seems to be the case. I wonder if one hive may be drawing in foragers from neighboring hives? I've yet to see 2 boomers right next to one another. I've acquired another location on some alfalfa fields and will place the hives farther apart to see if it changes the way they grow.
