I was asked to do a cut-out here in San Diego in the next weeks. It made me think about whether there are any preferred times of year to do a cut-out.
On one hand during the spring there would be ample food for the colony to re-establish in their location, thus favoring spring/summer cut-outs.
On the other hand during the spring the colony would be at its largest in size, thus favoring fall/winter cut-outs.
Are there any general rules for how to time cut-outs?
