robbing is when other bees are trying to rob the hive. It's easy to identify if you know what to look for.... if you see lots of bees trying to get into the hive in a very frenzied fashion with lots of fighting going on at the entrance chances are it's robbing. Someone on here posted a picture but I can't remember now who it was.... youtube may have some videos, and someone else on here put up a great post about the robbing screens that they use.

In our bee yard if we suspect robbing is going on or that it might start we reduce the entrances immediately. We hope to get some of the screens like the ones that were posted on here this year.
