I am ready to assemble my hive but wonder if this is the best time of year to start. Is there a best time/weather etc to start?

Jessica, actually because we are here in South Florida you can start a hive pretty much at anytime. There are times I would be easier because of a good nectar flow. If there is not a good nectar flow then you will have to feed the bees.
Yiu dint mentuon when it would be easier, when is there better nectar flow?

Nectar flow is usually in the Spring and fall. Some areas don't have the fall. Where I live it don't seem to stop at all. There is a lot of landscaping that blooms. After all Location, location. location is the key.
