I am introducing a queen in a JZBZ queen cage. I was told she had been in there 3 days when I got her. She and her attendants have been eating the candy and I don't have any idea when she might be released from eating the candy. I read that some beeks direct release their queens from the cages after some amount of time. What is a typical timeframe for her to be released after being introduced into the nuc?

I suspect mine might get eaten out of the cage in 3 days. Is that enough time for an introduction or should I cap the cage for a while?
