Queen “B” (garden)

One of my queens seen on my first inspection of the year , you can clearly see all the eggs she has laid. All hives have overwintered well.

  1. I think the queen bees look so regal (just goes to show the power of suggestion). We have not marked our queens and have not seen them this year, just checking for larvae to know that they are there. Yours is a beautiful dark queen. Great photograph. Amelia

    • well I let my queens swarm each year which is natural and also give a brood break which in turn keeps varroa down so I dont always mark my queens , and if I do its always with white rather than a colour code for that year ..
