Re: Killing queen after Marking?
I am not experienced and I don't know if this really makes any difference or not. I put a drop of the marker paint on the top of a frame where a lot of bees are, I then isolate the Queen, mark her, take off the cover and place the marker tube on the frames while the paint dries. That way the bees seem to be more used to the scent of the marker.
What is a Queen muff and how is it used? Ahhh...Brushy Mountain carries them...ordered one. Now all I need is to raise a Queen
