I'm very interested in gaining the experience that so many of you have in regard to what the bees are doing and on what schedule. For instance, knowing that "this brood is going from egg to emerging in x-number of days (or hours even)," and the like. However, it seems to me that such observations would require knowing exactly When things are occuring, which would further require getting into the hive very often AND making note of what is going on in specific cells.
How DO you do it?
I don't what to observe the bees to death, but I do want to make these obervations that many of you are able to make.
For instance, how long after drone are capped, do you check for mites?
