I caught a Queen A week ago and thanks to Aidah's hints on the pollen ball, I think she is laying eggs.
Does anyone one know the timeline of a Bumble Bee? How many days as an egg, and days as a larva, and days as a pupae till hatching.
Is there anything I can do to help this process along. Temperature, humidity, what do I do?
I bought and read Spivak's book, but it is lacking so many details. It amazes me that we know so much about honey bees and we know so little about our native bees.
