Beekeeping Honeybee life cycles

The following is important honeybee lifecycle information which must be learnt. The numbers are days.

                    Queen. Worker. Drone
Hatches.         3.        3.             3
Cell sealed.    9.        9.             9
Emerges.      16.       21.          24

Variants of one day are quite common.

Roger recommends marking the queen and clipping her wings. This allows the beekeeper to have inspection intervals of 14 days.
