    Default after brood emeges from comb

    How long after a new bee comes out does the cell get reused ? I realize that there are variables like season and flow , but in general do they sit empty for a week or a month or .............

    If there's a good flow on, and the queen's laying at "full capacity", then I've seen frames that had fresh eggs right in the next cell to an emerging bee...so I'd say it could be as little as a matter of minutes between emergence & re-laying, IMO
