Is this #8 wire --- what size do you need. I know they can get through (workers) #5. Is #6 small enough for a push in cage?

i used #8. #6 may be too big. #7 would probably be OK.

(I found this page referred in another laying worker post and this seemed the better place to follow up)
just out of curiosity, - what happens to the laying worker(s)?
are they ejected from the hive?
do they return to their role of scout, forager, gatherer etc. etc.?

IF you caged the queen underneath #8 wire on an empty comb laying eggs, in a laying worker, broodless colony, would this not create a problem before two weeks because the brood could not be feed without moving the cage to another location for the worker bees to have access? I understand if you have brood to place it over the workers may emerge and attend the queen etc.

sc-bee, If I understand your question correctly, you are thinking there is comb in the cage. There is not, just a larger cage for the queen to move around in until you release her. You remove one frame and drop this in. I made one "just in case" and used it one time for a new queen introduction just playing around with it. When I lifted it out, you could tell the bees on the outside were feeding her instead of biting at her.
 If I misunderstood, sorry. I'm sure someone will answer that does.

Someone mentioned putting her on comb to lay eggs ---- was wondering about eggs hatching and not being able to be accessed by workers. Guess it would have to be over brood?
