moving bees when it is cold
Looking at moving bees tomorrow. My question is, our high temp is expected to be 71 f with a low of 46 f. I would be moving them at night so the temps would be in the 50s to 40s. Bad idea? any thing I need to take into consideration?
Or should I wait a couple more days when the temps would be in the 50s to 60s? The thing that concerns me is if I happen to break the cluster and end up losing some of my colonies.
I will be moving the girls a few hundred miles so 4 hours on a trailer down a bunch of Texas farm to market roads.
