No. Your timeline is not correct. Queen bee cycle. Queen egg layed to emerging from queen cell = 21 days. 3 days after birth the virgin queen takes to the trees and breeds with 10-15 drones and begins laying. Uh. Michael Bush is a published authority of honey bees. http://blogs.evergreen.edu/terroir-z...the-honey-bee/
I'm not sure what being published has to do with it.
