Here in mid Missouri the day time temps are in the mid 50s to mid 70s and night time temps are mostly in the 40s. My question is , are these temps high enough to try the Demarree method of splitting most of the brood and eggs from the queen. Would the nurse bees be able to keep the brood and eggs warm in a deep box on top of the hive? Would there be enough bees to keep the eggs fed and warm in the bottom box with the queen? This hive is a strong hive. I wanted to use this to requeen this hive and split the old queen into a nuc after the new queen is laying.
