I would wait until high 60's to low 70's as a minimum for an inspection, but that would be for a framed hive.

Doing a cutout means you're probably going to be separating the bees from the brood for more than just a minute or two, so if I had a choice in the matter I'd try to wait until the 80's.

Oh dear...I went into mine last weekend. Cleaned up the frames, checked for brood, nectar, pollen, honey and cleaned the bottom boards. I hope they will be fine. They were outside flying around and frames weren't out more than a minute or two.
I doubt we will see 70 until June..seems a long time to wait.
I also switched fro hard sugar to syrup.
