Robber bees pose a serious risk to even the most vibrant bee colonies. There are instances where healthy and well thriving colonies have been wiped out by ruthless robber bees. Robber bees are particularly common when there are nectar shortages. This will happen mostly during warm months, usually early fall or over summer months. They rip cells open and may even kill the bees, queen included. They will invade during the day, devastate till nightfall and leave. They will then show up the following day early in the morning.
