#1 appearing to shake and buzz on the ground

Let me propose the 'buzzing' on the ground is a desperate attempt to fly, but because of the magnetic field anomalies that occur pre/post quakes the poor little buggers no longer know which way is up.

Phototropic you say? Sure, but that gives them the signal to move, not which way is up.

Geotropic? Yes, for burrowing not flying upside down.

#3 Good guesses. Behavior I've never seen, at least in Minnesota hives.

Ground struggles like this are typically when bees are physically injured.

#4 Nah, they were probably just exposed to some rap music he was playing right before the earthquake.
