    I guess my bees and I were in agreement on what I considered my weakest queen. Had someone wanting to buy a nuc, and I opened the box to see what was going on and lots of brood, so I made him up a nuc and when I caught the queen she wasn't marked. They had requeened. I do have a swarm in a box, I am suspicious that the queen might have a green dot on her back.

    I have 17 acres of mesquite around me, in bloom, plus sunflowers, it rained a couple days so blooming should continue. Bees are busy.

    How's everyone doing?
