Kentucky beekeep here usually don't have this problem ,but have a queen in a cage on my kitchen counter and can't hive her for couple days. She has few nurse bees water and fresh honey. How long can she stay in the cage without dieing or harm? thanks

Placed in a dark reasonably cool place (70-75 ish), I've not noticed an issue keeping them for a few days. I've only stored caged queens in battery boxes stocked with plenty of nurse bees like this for extended periods

I have kept queen in a cage in the house for up to a week, have to make sure they have food and water. Any longer I bank them.
