Marked queens are easier to find and their loss is a signal that supersedure has likely taken place

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pending arrival of ordered queens from AQBL,  5 Carniolan queens will be introduced to nucs split off from strong colonies or either directly into colonies with failing queens or into splits of strong hives with old queens.

Follow up sessions checking for queen acceptance or club demonstration of requeening using nucs and training sessions to follow once new queens are well established. TBA
