I am planning to move my honey bee hive from Michigan to Texas using an enclosed cargo trailer. We have a few concerns.

1.) Is this a safe distance?
2.) What about weather (cold here in MI but hot in TX)?
3.) Should the hive been sealed or use a hive net?
4.) What about the winter cluster? What if it's disturbed during transit?

We've heard winter is the best time to move. But MI to TX? Please help us. Thanks!
