Might seem like a stupid question (and maybe I'm over-thinking it), but should I not do a split in the evening? I would like to split one of my hives after work today and am wondering if it's a bad move to do it late in the day.
With a cold night coming on, I do not do a split less than three hours before evening cool down if I can help it. The bees need time to get organized before the temperature drops or you get chilled brood.
