    Default Drone maturity

    How long does it take for drones to go on mating flights after they hatch? I’ve got hives with their first drones hatching and a stretch of good weather and wondering if I can go ahead and graft. I usually wait till the first of May, but just wondering how early I can get away with it.

    You are good to go. They are mature to mate 12 days after emerging.
