    Question Queen Not Laying

    This is my 2nd year with bees. On May 3 we received our new package. I just checked today and the queen isn't laying. I found her, no mistake, but I absolutely could not see any eggs. I double, triple, quadruple checked and I see nothing. The queen looks great, running away fast as usual. What does this mean? Of course, last year, I found eggs 4 days after package install.

    Sometimes it seems to take longer. I wouldn't write her off quite yet. At 2 weeks I would requeen.
