Do what you need to do when you can, not necessarily when you want to. But, usually some time between daylight and dark. If the colony is strong enough to split the time of day doesn't matter much.

It is advantageous to make splits during the days busiest forage times. That means less foragers in the way and it is the nurse bees that are going to stay with the split. 10 and 2 is a rule of thumb but often I split outside of that and it works fine.
