At what temperature is it too cold to make a split
Checked my hives on Sunday. One of my colonies has several swarm cells, one with a larvae and another with an egg. I had a nuc ready, and had hoped to find the old queen and make a nuc. I could not find the old queen, so I closed that hive back up.
We have a cold front moving in, bringing thunderstorms today, and cooler temperatures the rest of the week. High temps Thursday and Friday are 65 and 62, with low to no winds. My question is, would it be too cold to split this hive on Thursday? The high temp will be 65 on Thursday.
