Later I was filling the water in the turkey tray moats on the bottom of the hives. Apparently I had set the nozzle at an odd angle and it was making too much noise and annoying the Twitchy Bees. There were a lot of bees flitting around the hive entrance and these were not orientation flights. They did not seem happy, I shut the water off and left.
An hour or two later I went to move some clothes in the laundry room, next to the hives. I looked around the corner and the bees still seemed to be agitated after all that time. I turned to leave and a guard bee took issue and kept buzzing me as I walked to the house. It made the mistake of getting tangled in my hair. Top of the head stings do not bother me but he never got that close to my scalp before he was smushed. I wanted to check that hive to see if there were other problems.
Summer has finally arrived locally and it has been a little too hot most days to bother the bees. It was in the low 70's when I went out this AM at 11. Well it said that on all my electronics but It seemed very hot while I was out there. When I was finished all the fancy gauges said it was 85!!!
I had added a super on each of the hives in July and I have two more ready to add when I set out for the inspection. With the milder summer I had no idea how fast the bees were filling the last super.
