interesting, I did not know about the possibility of a queen having her markings removed thru grooming.

we started 2 hives last year, and we were sure the queens had been replaced because we did not see marked queens in late summer, but we didn't see any queen cells either. but maybe the queens had their markings removed.

and yes, its best to just let the bees be bees for a while. be sure to feed them sugar syrup ( i like the hive top feeders best ) I have 4 beginner beekeeping books, and found the Beekeeping for Dummies book is real good for learning about what to do in your first year of beekeeping.

we documented our first year of beekeeping with a series of videos I made for my website, GardenFork.TV ( full disclosure: Brushy Mountain is now a GF sponsor )
