    As for marking, I was told to use the Elmers painters, opauque pain markers. They are found in the sewing section of Wal-mart. I think it cost $2, I dont think the marker had any negative effect, because I have seen MANY of my marked drones today. LOL

    [QUOTE=Ben Brewcat;638583]OTOH, if she's not marked you'll not know if she HAS been superceded . Marking is the only way to know, and I've had marked queens last years. " O.K. now that you know that she has been superseded, what next? Usually nothing, except that you know that you have a new queen. May be the reason why commercial beeks and some sideliners don't bother marking the queen. The supercedure of relatively new queens (esp. package queens) has become much more of a problem these last few years than ever before. Could marking the queens have anything to do with the problem?
