The bees are buzzing away. I'm thinking there is most definitely a robbing issue going on, but we blocked the big entrance to the hive and left only a small entrance that will be more easy for the Russians to defend. They are a good, cranky, hardy bee...I wouldn't want to mess with them, so all might be well. Send happy, strong thoughts their way!
I just hope they aren't too angry at the world, come Tuesday when we're taking a good peek inside!
