I note almost all cutouts are being done in the latter part of the day.  Is this just the way things worked and these folks aren't just later day people?  Or, is there a specific reason to do this late.  I do understand that hives get left to gather the bees at nightfall.  Can one just go get the hive early on the following morning?  I ask because I want to do cutouts, but I am not a late day person.

Don't know about the others, but It takes me most of the day to get everything loaded and ready to go.
Also, I want it to warm up enough for the foragers to be in the field, not the hive, so I never start a cut out before 10 or 11.

then you are talking about the hours that the cutout itself take.  don't know that i have ever done one in under 3 hours, start to finish.

I schedule mine for late in the day since I also have other customers to check in on and when I'm done with a cut out I'm done for the day. I also find that if I finish right at dusk I can catch the last of the foragers returning.

Bud I have to agree with what you said with Jp. When he tell me we need to get an early stArt to be at his house lets say 10am he will be ready at maybe 12noon. That's why we start the cutouts late. Just saying grin

Yeah, but y'all left out the BSing, feeding the dogs, letting out the chickens...  grin

Just to add my thoughts on this: Cut outs can be done in the morning, even finished in entirety well before dark but if you don't leave the new set up there and seal it in the dark you will leave behind quite a many bees which the customer will not be happy with. Besides the colony could likely use those extras that are out foraging.

If the situation presents itself I don't have a problem leaving the new set up on site for a few days to several days then picking it up another night. An added benefit to leaving it there also allows the bees to clean up any spilled honey. Just to add, its important when leaving a hive that either the queen has been caged, the void space sealed so they can't go back in or the area sprayed down heavy with something like beee quick.
