I feel im pretty good at spotting the queen but on cut outs there is so much noise and commotion I assume she runs for cover. I check them after a few days and look for eggs or queen cells to let me know whats going on. JP sure does make it look easy.
I'm with you, jaseemtp...JP also makes these removals look clean...I get honey running all over my hat, down my arms, in my clothes. Oh, it's ugly. Sometimes I look for the queen, but most of the time I'm just trying to keep my head on straight.
