Morning, I transported a test frame yesterday, on its own in Nuc. out of hive for approx 20 minutes. should be ok??

I just did a search on the forum and should have transported with bees in the nuc, shaken the bees off at location etc. next time.

Thanks

6 to 8 Langstroth jumbos, a few Langstroth and National nucs.
I have spent 30 mins or more grafting from one frame of open brood. They survived.
Direct sunlight and dehydration are the major likely issues.
