All our Complete Hives contain a VSH-Italian 'unmarked' mated queen.
Queens can be marked for an additional $5. Then, if you observe an unmarked queen you will know if your hive has swarmed. Colonies that swarm, produce a new queen that will mate with local drones, some of which will be Africanized. Resulting offspring will be more aggressive. Make sure your order 'Queen Marking' to have your queen marked.
