Urban beekeeping in New Mexico's largest city.
We want to check our hive but are wondering if it's safe because the weather has been windy and cold on/off. Will checking the hive during a warm day miss up the gaps filled with propolis? We have a top bar hive.
We need to check if there's any swarm cells because the hive has been very active. But not if it puts the hive at risk from the cold creeping in during cool evenings.
