    Wow, you grabbed the queens by the wings and then marked them? Wish I could do that!

    Here, my wife is the one who is gifted at finding and catching the queens and marking them, and we use a queen syringe catcher.

    Ok, I have a question: why not make some 2017 queens instead of heading into winter with all 2016 queens?
