Queen Cells ready to be removed and put into mating nucs.
This Caspian shows her paint is being groomed off. Although this is a wonderful trait to have against mites, the hobbyist may have difficulty finding her after a period of time. One of our services is to touch up the paint so that those new beeks with untrained eyes can keep tabs on the queen. It also is a great assistance to knowing if a queen has been superseded.
