  • Queen Marking

    Is it possible for that paint dot to come off of a queen? I know I saw a marked queen in the fall. When I checked this spring, I found an unmarked queen.

    Yes it’s common for the bees to remove it by the spring. But also possible they swarmed and you have a daughter? Any possibility they swarmed?

      It is possible but usually there is some small bit of paint left somewhere.
