Is it ok to temporarily trap my bees in their hive?
I am about to get my house painted and my hives are fairly close to my house. I was thinking about giving the painters the option to use veils/jackets but my neighbor, that got me in to beekeeping, suggested I trap the bees in the hive. I am in north Georgia and they start tomorrow, its suppose to get to 70F tomorrow and 75F Tuesday. I am guessing they would need to be trapped from 8am-6pm for at least two days.
