Hi

I put in my trays 2 weeks ago today.

However the whether today is quite cloudy and very occasional showers - it is mainly dull.

Should I replace the next tray today or could it wait until tomorrow?

Cheers

Nick

personally, i would just do it (even if an umbrella is required!)

taking the lid off and dropping the new one in takes seconds

Hi Nick

Suerly not going out in this rain? It'll upset your bees. A day or so really won't hurt I suspect. There you are - your mandatory confusing replies! I wouldn't put any smoke on 'em for such a swift operation, though you might like to have old smokey lit in case you find anything that needs closer attention.

Moggs (down the road a bit).

a day here or there won't hurt, but have you seen the weather forecast...

no need for smoke or spray. just make it brief.
