Re: Moving bees at night - should I open entrance at night or wait til morning?
How long have youy been married? How much longer do you wish to stay married? Is your wife an experienced beekeeper? NO!! Do not have your wife put a beehive in the back of her car and expect the bees to stay inside. Not in FL. Bees crawl and bees fly even in what we think is darkness.

If you have use of a pickup truck that's what I would recommend. An open pickup truck.
