I figure four weeks from emergence to becoming a forager. After that, the bee will live another two to three weeks depending on how many miles she flies. You want your hive to be packed with newly emerged bees about one month before your main flow kicks in. Our flow here in the RVA only lasts about six weeks so lots of bees early on is crucial to a decent honey crop.
