well, it's time for the first split, i have a new queen in my hot little hand and will be doing the split this evening. i plan on leaving the split alone for 12-24 hrs before introducing the new queen but since i have trouble finding the queen in the original hive ( she a queen left from last years swarm and pretty productive) what will be the easiest way to tell which hive she is when i am done, i would hate to pick incorrectly and introduce my new queen into the wrong hive if i accidently carry the original queen into the new hive. :scratch:
i have searched for an answer in the archieves and not really found an answer, and since queen locating is not my strong suit i thought i had better be sure so as not to have a real mess on my hands and get the new queen killed.
thanks in advance all
