£3.25 inc VAT

POSCA  PC-5M

The most used pen for Queen Marking
Water Based and Non-Toxic.

The 2.5mm bullet tip makes marking the queen easy.
Built in agitator mixes paint prior to use.
Quick Drying

Marking the Queen does three things:

1 – Makes it easier to spot her next time
2 – The colour used allows you to determine the age of the queen – see Colour Code Below.
3 – If an unmarked queen is found, then it is likely that the colony has swarmed or the queen superceded.

Marking the Queen:

Find the queen – The difficult bit.
Carefully place a Queen Marker cage over her.
Mark her, through the cage, on her Thorax.

The International Queen Marking Colour Code:

  • White – years ending 1 or 6
  • Yellow – years ending in 2 or 7 – (This Year’s Colour)
  • Red – years ending in 3 or 8.
  • Green – years ending in 4 or 9.
