    Default Should I leave Nuc Entrance Screened?

    I just picked up a Nuc and got home. It's now dark. I have screen over the entrance right now. It's Alabama, so it's fairly warm outside. My thought was to leave the entrance screened and remove it before daylight tomorrow morning. Then let them orient for a while, and transfer them. They are on top of their full size hive right now. Any problems with leaving the entrance screened for the night?

    Open it up! Nucs can easily cook themselves when left closed up to long during warm weather.

    Good deal. That's why I asked. Opened it up and they came out and started bearing. Not too happy with the truck ride though.
