I am willing to put up with a degree of hotness, and if too bad, I will exile them to the country. Re-queening often results in gentler bees. The issue for this time of year is the decision about trying to let the hive make a queen or purchasing one. There are fewer drones than there were a month ago and getting queens well mated is a bit more of a gamble now. Also, you need to consider if the hive is strong enough to take the brood reduction/interruption if you are going to attempt to allow the bees to make their own queen.
