Putting new bees in hive

716 1
We currently have one hive that someone had already started for us. This evening we are picking up a new package of bees. Our concern is for the next three days the temperature is going to get down in the mid thirties. We are in Southern Indiana. We are concerned with the low temperature and how the new hive will weather it. We do have a heated garage that we can keep them in at night and keep them sealed up.

Do we put them in the hive and keep in garage and put them out during the day? Not sure how they will do with moving different places.

Just put them in the hive outside and hope for the best?

Or ???????????

Would love your thoughts on this!

Thank you
