It seems that many folks don't have marked queens for one reason or another, but wish they did.  I know the thought of marking your own queens can seem intimidating for new beekeepers, so with the help of my son Blake, we made a short video demonstrating how easy it is.  Blake is only 8 years old and did all the camera work,  I think he did an outstanding job,  but then again, I'm his Dad, so I'm suppose to think that. grin This is also our first (hopefully there will be more) video,  so any feedback would be appreciated.

Thanks for the video Robo. Your son did a great job!!! Wish I could do as well!!!

Also thanks for you website have looked at it several times--- I believe about the cloake board (think that was your site). Still a little confused on it. How about a video on it and setting it up for queen rearing grin.

Just wish I had something besides dial-up Cry!

I don't have anything on my site about Cloake boards....yet!    I plan on building a couple this winter and will put a video together in the spring.... stay tuned.

I feel your pain.  I can not get DSL or Cable at home either and am stuck with a crappy 24K dial-up at best.  Wild Blue just became available in my area, so after the holidays I'm going to seriously consider it.

Rob, I meant to tell you before, but forgot, that video of queen marking was very good, straight to the point and I actually didn't realize it was so simple, think I'm going to be marking all my queens in spring when I can get in the hives.  It really is a good idea, it is sometimes very hard to find that gal.  Have a wonderful and beautiful day.
