    I have read that if you have the brood out of the hive for to long it can chill the brood and kill it or damage. So my question is how long do you have when inspecting before you damage brood

    These times should be safe.
    50 F. 2 or 3 minutes
    60 F. 5 minutes
    70 F. 15 minutes
    Considering sunny and calm, with the bees not removed from comb.
