This is my first post in this thread, I hope I posting in the correct place.

I was thinking. . . I was reading that some people kept some hives in a black tent and the bees were ready to go a month earlier in the Spring.

Is it possible to have a hive that you bring inside (like an observation hive with a tube through the window for access) to keep them warm and get them to lay drones and queens, AI the queens (too cold for a mating flight), and get them laying in time for the Spring flowers?

From my reading, it seems possible, is it feasible?
