    Default Writing on black plastic frames?

    I am on my second year using Mann Lake black plastic frames and would like to keep track of the age of the comb. What are people finding that works? Thanks, Adrian.

    A white or yellow paint pen, found at hobby stores will work fine, or a queen marking pen from the bee supply companies in a white or light color.

    I use a black marker and put it on top of the frame. The frames that were drawn last year just put an 09 on top very simple and easy to ID.

    Sharpie makes their indelible markers in many colors, but for marking on black, I prefer silver.
