    Default age for royal jelly production

    What age do bees stop producing royal jelly? I am asking because I have a hive that has been queenless for a while and was thinking of using it for a cell starter/builder. If I have to I can add a few frames of emerging brood to it. John

    Default Re: age for royal jelly production

    Any bee that is six days old until their death from old age can do any job in the hive.
