    Well in a few hours I am going to install my 3rd Package this year in my 4th Hive!

    They are in the house right now and it went down to 30 degrees last night.

    Right now it's 45 F and supposed to goto 52F. What temp is ok to start the install?

    Here they are!

    I'd say 52° is marginal. What is the forecast for the next day or 2? If it's going to get into the 60's, I'd wait the extra day.

    That's a good looking package! All that I have seen this year, including mine, had 1/2" dead bees on the floor.
