We are grateful you are here

Newbie question. Neighbor bees come and feed from the feeder I made for mine and they are really aggressive, will they harm my poor babies in the long run?

I don't know if I'm doing more harm than good by leaving the feeder out. First week I was so proud watching them get their daily syrup in total harmony, but today everything changed.

These bees are coming from like a mile away but somehow are overrunning mine. They completely took over the feeder, their buzzing is violent and my babies seem to be standing back. I saw some fighting and I don't know how much energy they are now wasting in guarding the hive when before this they seemed completely relaxed and at peace.

I wanted to make sure they could feed over the winter but i somehow created a warzone around them by doing so. What should I do, please advise 🙏
