Is Susan thinking of swarming?

posted in Our Hives |

For several days I’ve noticed a gathering of bees around the entrance and extending up the side of the hive on Susan, in the late afternoon/early evening before sundown.  The books claim that it’s typical for swarming activity to occur around mid-day, so the timing is odd.  Moreover, Susan is the least built up colony, the least congested - so I’d think she was the least likely to swarm.  Finally, these are Italians, which are supposed to be less likely to swarm in the first place.
