    Default swarm cell nuc question

    After making a nuc with a capped swarm cell about how long should you start seeing eggs if the new queen survives?

    The new queen will probably start to lay in 3 weeks. From the sealing of the cell it takes 8 days for the virgin to emerge and about 10 to 14 days for her to mate and start to lay.
