Queen No. 2 found and marked
Now I'm really motoring.
Found and marked the queen in the hive from which the nuc was taken on 2nd May. Green is the colour (of my true love's eyes - yes, it's true, but don't distract me with old song lyrics, probably mis-remembered). Green is the colour of 2009. So if the queen isn't green, she's been --- superseded. That's the bee rap,
She has layed about one frame of eggs.
See photo below of me marking her. Note the nurse bees getting very worried about what I was up to.
I have NOT clipped her wings - after the disaster in April.
