So I'm out trying my new smoker and hear some serious buzzing. Walk over to my hive and the bees are out to the front of the hive and a cloud is growing. I've been working on getting the numbers up with feeding syrup and sup so brood has been booming. This isn't swarming behavior is it? Looks more like orientation flights to me but I want to be sure. Also what is with a bee with a white back? I saw a couple on the hive face while they were going crazy.
