Re: Paint on Queens?
I don't mark my queens anymore, but I do get people that buy nucs asking for marked queens. Marking tube is the best way I know to mark a queen without hurting her. I know guys that are pretty good about holding the queen for marking but there is always the chance of injuring the queen, even for experienced handlers. Tubes are cheap and if you are not doing a couple of hundred a day then it is the way I would recommend you go.
