Some bugs are just a nuisance. For me right now, it’s the yellow jackets and bald face hornets. To be honest, I have a few honey bees that aren’t too friendly but then I cause them a lot of trouble.
Early on I didn’t know to reduce the hive entrance to about an inch in September. It’s robbing season. Foragers are having a tough time meeting their nectar quota and so they start robbing from each other, mostly from weak colonies. What’s a weak colony? Ten to fifteen thousand bees. What’s a normal colony this time of year? About thirty thousand.
