100 degrees, to hot for cutout brood to survive?
« on: June 28, 2012, 02:51:18 PM »
Supposed to be close to or a little above the 100 degree mark for this weekends removal.

Existing colony, hive, and I will all be in the shade, and I think I can be done by noon.

Given the recovery period a cutout colony goes through, will the excessive heat forecasted for the next week cause this new cutout to lose their brood?

Never done one with temperatures so high.

Thanks.    ....Don

The brood will be fine, they love the heat.
