Re: When should eggs appear in a brand new tp?
I have a swarm I put in a top bar two weeks ago tomorrow. they have 9 bars with abut a half football size comb on each with nectar in the top of every comb and stages of brood everything from capped to eggs starting from the top to the bottom of the comb. it is like the bees build the comb longer each day and the queen lays in those cells. I expect the first new bees to be emerging in a bit over a week.
Everything gets darker, as it goes to where there is less light. Darrel Tank (5PM drawing instructor)
