    Default When Should I Start Seeing Queen Cells?

    I added two frames of brood with eggs, uncapped larvae and capped larvae to a small hive that has lots of adult bees making honey but had no brood what so ever present. I do not want to disturb the hive a lot so how long should I wait until I might see some queen cells being made?

    After I put a frame of eggs and brood into a queenless hive I wait six days and then check those frames for cells.
