If the queen can lay up to 1,500 eggs a day, (according to Beekeeping for Dummies), why don't we see 1,500 bees each day making their orientation flights? Occasionally it seems like there might be that many, but most days only a few and some days seems like none at all. I realize she may need a break now and then, but it still seems like it should happen on a daily basis. Also, do drones do orientation flights? I would think so, but I have never noticed them.
