I want to mark my queens from the cut, ( forgot to ask if the queens are marked on the two nucs I picked up last weekend ) so maybe them also. So what are some of the ways to do this? Do you use any old paint marker? Since these are my bees I see no reason to go with the color / year system just something bright to make finding her easy. Last question for the night when should you wash your bee suit? The boss lady washed them after the first use lots of stingers, honey, and bee poo. I see no reason to wash them again after two times of light use.
