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

I like doing cut-outs, but I love catching swarms!

The brood will be fine, they love the heat.
