For those who have never seen robbing, here is the death of a hive in progress. Ignore the date on the photo, I have never set the camera date.
The pic was taken today, 7-23-07

Dumb question but how do you tell robbing from bearding? Is the robbing insane and frenzied whereas bearding is more of a calm cluster?

Can you do anything to prevent the robbing, like put in a reducer in the main opening so the resident bees have less area to defend against intruders?
Yup and yup ... others may have different opinions. Just my experience.
