I’ve got a puzzling situation going on in one of my hives I had a day old emerged queen in.... there’s eggs everywhere. Will queens have mating flights and immediately start laying or will they wait until they’ve made a few and are complete? I’ve read for about four days they will make several is it possible she was done or perhaps there’s another queen? 🧐

with supercedure the old queen will still be laying for a time while the new queen will be going out to get mated for a time you can have more than one queen in the hive laying.

This hive was queenless for more than a week and a day day and a half after I released an unmarked Queen there are eggs everywhere it just seems kind of fast for it to be her.
