    Hello Thomas. I'll look as I had seen one in one of my hives recently. How it got there, I have no clue.

    I even found two marked queens this year and I do not mark queens. I did catch some late swarms last fall that I threw out in some holding yards. I moved some bees around for pollination this year and I'm sure a queen or two are from other yards.
