Hi ,   Somewhere I have seen a year to year chart/schedule on what color to mark new queens with each year.  This is in hopes of having some standardization .  Can anyone please point me in the right direction or forward that info to this thread ?    Thanks!       ---Burl---

for years ending in 1 or 6 white
                          2 or 7 yellow
                          3 or 8 red
                          4 or 9 green 
it is in lots of books and  Brushy mountain's catalog.
