This seems to go on almost every night around this time. (7:00pm) To me it looks like the same bees from this hive. This is the strongest hive of the two here at home. Never have issues with the other hive.

If they are just coming out of the hive, turning around to look at it and just hovering for several minutes, that is called orientation flights. They are the graduating class of soon to be foragers. Not a thing to worry about.

That's what it looks like but it is always around the same time and it's everyday. They do it for about an hour and all is calm.

well I could tell you there checking the house house out making sure the paint is not needing redone but that would be stretching it a bit.:grin: So let go with perfectly normal orientation flights as g-3 said
