    It truly is difficult to get knowledgeable individuals on this topic, however you sound like you are aware of what you are dealing with! Thanks

      Hi Seth,
      Yes, we do have a pretty good idea of what we are doing. As the Queen marking colour changes on a yearly basis it is good to remember which colour represents which year and the little mnemonic helps – incidentally it comes to you, via us, from The Cheshire Beekeepers Association.
