For those with any experience doing this, I may be moving some of my colonies to another location some miles away from their current home.

Is there any reason to wait until spring when they've warmed up or can I do it once I can get to them through the snow drifts? Thanks.

I'm going to take a stab at this even though I am not very experienced. I'll bet you should wait till spring, when the bees are out of their winter cluster. I would think that moving them now, when they are trying to stay warm and survive, would put unnecessary stress on them and possibly cause the cluster to break up, etc etc. I'd like an opinion from any of you old timers whether if this is the correct train of thought on this topic. ;)
