    I was wondering if its warm enough to install a package if Italians. It will be about 50 deg. or less outside when I get to it. Or should I wait a day or 2 until it warms up?

    Thanks,

    scott

    50 is more than warm enough. The less time they spend in the package, the better. And, of course, feed, feed, feed.

    I put packages in a hive as soon as I get them. Sometimes it is nice and in the 60s, sometimes it is snowing and in the 30s.

    50 is warm enough. IMO less is not.
