bees real active

North of Greensboro
Bees are real active around my hive today. I am not sure if it is just because of warm weather or if there is robbing, I stuffed some grass in the entrance and I took a photo

My bees are also very active on hives getting sun. Are bees wrestling and falling to the ground at the landing board? Do you see bees behind the hive and at spaces between supers where you usually do not see them flying? These are activities associated with strong probing or robbing.

I do not see these signs of strong probing. Thanks for the quick response
