Now, if I mark, its just a small dot on the thorax and i don;t bother to even lift the queen off the frame. i just dab it while she goes about her business.
Do the workers try to clean her off? I purchased a queen muff and clip and have marked 4 queens this year, but I am interested in your technique. So long as the queen doesn't get "unmarked" by the workers, your method sounds more sensible, and less stressful to the queen than my way.
