Re: Anyone ever install packages in cold or snow?
I've hived bees in the snow (snowing as I installed the packages) before. A few times. I don't spray with syrup, dump them fast and button them up. I don't like to have a lot of bees in the air so I don't take my time...I just get it done. Not really a problem at all. I wouldn't do it in an out and out storm, mainly because of the wind but hiving in a light snowfall isn't a real issue.
