I usually check mine after 24 hrs. but that's just because I'm so curious. If you keep your starter broodless and queenless they work the grafts right off the bat. Heck, they go right to work regardless.

But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

Bailey, Alan said for experience sake check them at 12 & 24hr intervals. Within 30-40 minutes BTW, the bees will pull out any damaged larvae.

Good luck and yell at me tomorrow with your results.
