I went through the hives this morning and was able to enjoy the cool front that came through. I was able to spot the queen working the upper box so I decided to mark her. I was able to get her into my yellow plunger and gently marked her but she was agitated after the paint was dabbed on. She spun around and got some on her head/top of eyes from the paint on the cage portion of the holder.
Do you thing she will be ok? I was going to see if she is still active this afternoon.
I spotted the queen in the second hive and when I grabbed the cup she moved. Took 10 min to find her again and i had to set the frame down and i coudn't find her again and I gave up.
