after installing a new queen about how long should it be before she starts laying eggs?
Un-mated a week or so. Mated a day or so. A lot depends of weather, season, or other circumstances.
Never had a virgin lay eggs in 7 days after introduction. I've had mated queens take a week or so to start laying.
A few days to a few weeks. There are too many variables to give you an accurate time frame.
thank you for the info this was a mated queen should have mentioned that.
