Explanation:
"Kada nema dovoljno hrane pčele gonjene nagonom samoodržanja napadaju druge košnice, narušavajući svoj ugled bića sa najvišim moralnim i radnim vrednostima, i odnose tuđu muku. U toj borbi mnoge pčele, a nekada i sve pčele obično slabijeg napadnutog društva stradaju."

Robbing is a term used in beekeeping. Bees from one beehive will try to rob honey from another hive. Robbing behavior is especially strong when there is little nectar in the field.
