Re: Cut Out advice needed
I have done cut out's this early in the year, but I'm in Texas and my temps are different than yours. If you can wait until a day when temps reach 60+, work fast, and don't mind feeding them. It can be done. You'll lose some brood, but you can get the bee's. Avoid using a bee vac if you can this time of year as it seperates the bees off the brood. Be careful to watch for the queen. If you find her, cage her and put her in the new hive for a few days along with some nurse bees in the cage. Place the cage deep in the middle of your hive so that you know the bees will cluster around her if you have a cold spell.
The best thing you can do though is wait until temps are in upper 70's.
