Eggs – Don’t know about you, but seeing some those eggs in the comb is challenging. But what to look for? When the egg is initially laid in the cell by the queen it is standing on its end. It then falls to the bottom of the cell appearing straight by day two and on day three does a half curl. On day four it evolves into larva. The first three days of the eggs life the nurse bees are feeding it Royal Jelly. The cell is then capped around day nine as the larva continues to develop into a complete honeybee. Emerging on day 21 for a worker. But don’t put your calendar to this scenario. All kinds of things can alter the sequence up to a day in either direction.
