      I want to thank everyone who responded to my request.   I was able to start feeding them, although they did not accept the syrup at first.  Because of different reasons, I wasn't able to do an inspection till today.  What a surprise to find out that robbing was occurring. To anyone who doesn't think they will recognize robbing, it is the most violent war amongst bees.  I immediately reduced the entrance to the hive and blocked my other hive entrances with grass. It appears the only hive in danger is the weak one.  To see bees fighting in that manner was a wakeup call. This afternoon  it had calmed down, but with dead bees all around the hive.  I guess at this point it's doomed. But who knows, depending on how many  survived, with feeding, it may survive.
       
      I'll keep you posted.
       
      Thanks all,
      Mike Z.
