Why do we call virgin queen bees virgin queens? Why don't we call them Princess Bees? That's how I am going to refer to them from now on and we'll see if it takes. Wanna join me?

Granted, I am not overly familiar with royalty, but I would not think that one could necessarily equate being a princess with being a virgin.

"..... over in this here mating nuc... "
You know, I think perhaps we should call that a "marriage nuc."

I was thinking about this in relation to the modular building industry in which I am employed as an engineer. In the previous facilities I've worked, the walls that were common to adjacent modules were known as "mating walls," that is, when the modules were placed on the foundation next to each other, the walls mated or "matched" each other so doors, etc aligned.

When I moved to Maine to resume work in the industry, the staid New Englanders here referred to the walls as "marriage walls."

Work real hard and give all the studs what they want or they may retaliate for the death of their brothers.
