If there were a good flow going on, would bees still be inclined to rob?...Seems like they'd be too busy....Thoughts?

No, they won't rob during a heavy flow, but there are times when there are many blooms, but little or no flow. You have to go by what's coming in, not what's blooming.

Thanks for the info, iddee...I do see a little pollen coming in, but I was still robbed out on one small hive.

When you have a small (weak) hive near strong ones, it's a good idea to reduce the size of the entrance so that when things dry up (and that can happen overnight with no warning) they'll be able to protect their assets.
