When Should I Check????

833 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Michael Bush
Anyone care to offer up an opinion as to how long after my queen cells have hatched that I should do my first inspection for eggs assuming she gets bred and back without any problems.

Thanks so much

You can check often as you want. The concern is damaging the cell or the pupa inside.

She will emerge in 7-8days and mate and lay 1-2 weeks after. Check in about 2-3 weeks for eggs.
I expect to find new eggs laid two weeks after the queen emerges (26 days after she hatched). Three weeks on the outside.
