I saw an uncapped queen cell with a big wet larva and plenty of jelly on January 26th, so I'm guessing that was day 5 or 6.

That makes today day around day 16-ish, or right around her expected date of emergence.

She should be ready for her mating flights in about a week, correct? We have drones here in Los Angeles, and a week from how we're expecting weather in the low- to mid-60s. What's the minimum temperature for mating flights?

What are the odds of catching her going out/in on the BeeCam?
