    Upper 50's and stinging. I opened one today without smoke or veil. Arthritis shouldn't be a problem for a month or two. Probably 15 or more stings within 2 to 3 minutes. Only one bothered me was inside the ear.

    Can't say I didn't hear her coming.

    Oh my goodness, mine were flying at 44 degree temp and doing fine. Came out, pooped, and went back home. Though I do admit they were sluggish going back in. Maybe they got cold.

    I love a surprise "warm" winter day when the hive is in the sun and I can see my honeys come out!

    I pop the top every two weeks to feed them and check on them, with no smoke or veil. And no stings.

    you guys need to be careful about opening those hives on a warm winter day. if you aren't wearing protective gear (like a raincoat) you may end up taking a shower and doing laundry.

    Any warmer and they'll be bringing back out the lawn furniture you made them.
