Re: Queen questions
ok, first, just because you didn't see the queen, doesn't mean you didn't get her.
queen cells tell me you didn't or she didn't survive being got.
I have had them build queen cells in 3 days so they could possibly have them most of the way done in 2. remember they cap the cell on day 6 , so if they are going to make one from an existing egg they need to hurry.
if they were queenless before, there would have been queen cells. either you didn't get her, or she didn't survive.
your virgin queen will fly where she wants, and mate with the drones she wants. they could be on your front pourch, or 3 miles away. remember she is a (teenager) queen. she will do what she wants......
