Queen Marking Pen

Use this colorfast ink pen to indicate the year the queen is introduced to a hive.

$7.29

Help yourself locate your queen so you can safely transfer resources to other hives. You may also confirm that she has not been replaced.

For a safer, more efficient queen marking process, we recommend the Queen Marking Tube. You may also wish to try out the Queen Marker Cage.

There is a purpose to the color used to mark a queen! While you can purchase whatever color you wish, beekeepers use the following colors to track the age of their queens.

  • Years Ending in #1 & #6: White
  • Years Ending in #2 & #7: Yellow
  • Years Ending in #3 & #8: Red
  • Years Ending in #4 & #9: Green
  • Years Ending in #5 & #10: Blue
