Re: Takin' It On The Road.
In 2009 I bought some queens from Mike Palmer, of St Albans,VT. They had/have a green dot on their back. I saw one today in one of my hives. Even though the colony is on the weak side, what brood there is looks good. There were three frames w/ capped brood, probably really two frames of brood on three frames. I boosted it w/ a frame of capped brood and a frame of honey from another hive.
