Well I am fairly certain my fears about accidentally crushing my queen were valid. I looked yesterday and found two queen cells built on one frame, just about opposite each other on either side. Not quite half way down, just about in the middle of the frame. My question is... realistically in my location, how long until 1) the queen emerges from the cell 2) How long until she starts laying eggs. 3) Some of the books I read say queens raised this way are usually poor queens. Is there any validiity to this statement?
