Re: Is there a bad time to capture a hive?
"[I] need to know if i should just order the stuff now and capture them right away or is it too late and i should wait?"
I would order and proceed. Smoke them modestly but consistently for twenty minutes or so to give them time to eat honey prior to beginning removal. Carefully keep some of the uncapped brood to anchor them. Feed them back their own honey generously inside the top bar hive after they have settled in. I hope it goes well for you. Cheers,
