    Default How long can a queen stay in the queen cage?

    How long can a queen stay in the queen cage she is shipped in, without putting her in a queen banking nuc? Is five days too long?

    If there are attendants with he, lightly sprits them with syrup a few times a day. If you just started a nuc. You can put her in there with the other queen and the nurse bees will feed her. Do not remove the plug over the candy. Or you may have two free queens. And they may fight to the death.
