hey there. a couple of people have asked about the blue dot on the queen bees. you can buy them marked this way–the dot is painted on and it’ll stay there throughout her life. the dots are color-coded by year. 2010 is blue. in 2015 it’ll be blue again. the life span of a queen bee is from 1-5 years! it’s easier for newbs like ourselves to get them marked this way. if the hives survive eventually they’ll make another queen to take over. so much to learn with this!
