Re: Marking Queens
Some become absolute pests. The bee with all the paint on her was surely the most persistant. I could move to another nuc on the far side of the group of nucs and she'd show up in a minute or two. Most of these bees are just in the way but occassionally you get one with evil intentions. They usually wind up stinging my fingers and not the queen.
Reminds me of one of my favorite gripes: Why when there are a million (literally) bees here is there just one really mean bee that dosent leave you alone, why not either thousands or none at all. Then one day while reading beesource it dawned on me, the people on here are like bees......
