Yes, when the queen is purchased by someone else it means she can establish a colony right away. Without them, she would have to make and then wait for some babies to hatch. but what will happen to the colony which the queen bee is being sold from? Those worker bees won’t have a queen anymore, right?
You get an eye for it after a while. When we do (did) demonstrations for the public we have them compete to see who could find her first once she’s been spotted on a frame. It’s really only fun to do with newer unmarked queens though.
