Hi, All! After a series of bee markings I find it frustrating that the worker
bees would removed the paints off my queen bees. Worker and drone bees are
o.k. to mark as their grooming was not that frequent. So an idea came to mind
to glue a dab of Titebond III on her back first. Then just before the glue dry
out put a small spot of cheap acrylic paint on top of the glue. The glue and the acrylic
paint dry out quickly to make a tight fit on the queen bee. Cannot find the testor paints so
I bought the cheap one.
Has anybody tried this approach before? You think it will work compared to the other
paints that fall off in a few seasons?
