i like gorilla glue for almost everything.  you do have to dampen the surfaces a bit, but not much.  good old elmers would do.

why would you want to?

I use a hot glue gun.   Quick (hardens in seconds) , easy, and I have never had one come loose in shipping.   I use plastic queen cages, but it should work equally as well with wooden cages.
