    Default New Swarm and Queen egg laying

    I have a swarm that took roost in a bait hive in my orchard some time during the last two-three weeks. When can I expect the virgin queen to begin egg laying?

    Usually, the queen from a swarm will not be a virgin. She may take a week or so to begin laying eggs again. There are occasions when a swarm may contain a virgin in which case, you might wait two weeks.
