This is way too long. My package took 5 days to get to me and I had a significant number of dead bees and the sugar syrup was already depleted.

A package under horrible conditions can die in hours. A package under ideal conditions can last a few weeks if they don't run out of food, but in the meantime the bees are getting older and they will start building comb in the package that will get wasted...

I would be afraid of them running out of food in 10 days...
