Marking Queens

I went to a bee workshop this morning hosted by my local bee club. The rain even held off until we were about to wrap things up. If you are thinking about or just getting started with bees, I would definitely recommend reaching out to your local club. They oftentimes have classes in the spring and can connect you to a mentor to help you one-on-one.

I took this video of an easy technique to mark a queen on a frame. This frame ended up going into an observation hive that will soon be in the local visitor's center.
