    a great pdf article on judging the quality of the queen in a hive, how to, what to look for, brood patterns, and some common problems with great photos.

    as beekeepers we all need to pay attention to the quality of our queens every time we open a hive, and learning to read brood frames, or the activity of the bees is a key without finding her. from the article:

    "The beekeeper must learn to judge the quality of the queen and to decide either to replace her or to leave her in the hive. He (and she) should always watch for her condition and brood pattern. "
