I try to make a point of marking my queens when I see them, it certainly makes life easier if you are trying to artificially swarm.

Great pics! I can even see eggs in those cells!

While my installed nucs were small, I didn't have much trouble finding my (unmarked) queens; it'll get harder now, though.

Hello Adam-

What type of queens are they? They look alot like my Russian queen.

Congrats on finding them so (relatively) easily!

Those must be Italian Queens, not Russian.    
Red-White- and Green are the colors of the Italian Flag. :shock:
