How long for an installed queen to start laying?
« on: July 12, 2016, 09:26:36 am »
I installed a mated Russian queen into a queenless hive.  She was out of the box Sunday. If I do an inspection this coming weekend should I expect to find eggs?

Yes. I expect to find eggs 7 days after the initial install, or about 4 days after release
