Marking the Queen does three things:

1 - Makes it easier to spot her next time

2 - The colour used allows you to determine the age of the queen - see Colour Code Below.

3 - If an unmarked queen is found, then it is likely that the colony has swarmed or the queen superceded.


Marking the Queen:

Find the queen - The difficult bit.

Carefully place a Queen Marker cage over her.

Mark her, through the cage, on her Thorax.
