Colour Blind Beekeeping Tip #1

If you’re a colour blind beekeeper who keeps dropping your hive tools in the grass, here’s a little trick that should help you spot said hive tool in the grass: YELLOW DUCT TAPE.

I should have taken a photo of one of the hive tools in the grass so people who are colour blind can see how well the yellow stands out, but you get the idea. Blue isn’t bad either, but yellow creates an excellent contrast.

    Don’t bother with the red and green queen marking colours (years ends 3/8, 4/9 respectively) as you can’t tell them apart. Don’t bother with yellow (2/7) as it looks too much like pollen. Stick with white or blue … no-one who has ever had queens from me has ever complained.
