    Default Queen marker pen

    Hi all
    Do you know if there is a difference between the queen marker pen that is sold in the bee-stores, and the other that is sold in the book stores?
    The first is sold for 6-7 euros a piece and the other for 3 euros a piece.
    I personally don't think that the pen factories make <<special>> pens for bees.
    What do you all think?

    I've never used a "real" queen marker, only a water-based Sharpie (from the local Walmart if I remember correctly). It always worked fine for me.

    TESTORS makes a paint pen that you can get for less than USD$4 on www.amazon.com. Or you could just use a colored Sharpie marker.

    Any pen that uses enamel will work fine.
