My bees are making a new queen and she's due to emerge on the 29th, how long should I wait to inspect the hive to see if she's laying?
Thanks

About 2 weeks after expected hatch date at least. Give her a chance to harden up a bit, then mating flights, then hopefully laying eggs good. 2 weeks seems about right to me. If in open the hive and see eggs, it's closed up asap. No reason to be in there after that.
