Queen Marking Pen


Marking a queen with a queen marking pen helps you to locate her so that you can safely transfer resources to other hives. You can also confirm that she has not been replaced. We recommend a Queen Marking Tube or Round Push-in Queen Mark Cage for safe and efficient queen marking. 

There is a purpose to the color used to mark a queen! While you can use whatever color you wish, beekeepers use the following colors to track the age of their queens.

  • Years Ending in #1 & #6: White
  • Years Ending in #2 & #7: Yellow
  • Years Ending in #3 & #8: Red
  • Years Ending in #4 & #9: Green
  • Years Ending in #5 & #0: Blue
