Where do they get these numbers?
If a queen laid 2,000 eggs every day it would take her 4.1 years to lay 3,000,000 eggs.
If 2 queens laid 4,000 eggs total per day, it would take 2 years to lay 3,000,000 eggs.
Then when you factor in the life expectancy of the bees, it would take many years to reach that number.... Oh wait. It would never reach that number
