Buy them it with them already in there.         But if you are putting your bees in there, stick them in head first and let them walk in.

No, hothead, he told you correct. You pick them up, stick their head in the hole, and release them. They will walk in. Hold your finger over the hole until you pick up another, and stick her head in the hole. After a few times practicing, you quit getting stung.

Maybe hothead remarks contribute to so few replies to your inquiries.

To Joel's defense the sarcasm in the beginning was confusing.

he pretty much gave Joelel his two options. 

Joelel, i have really tried to be nice to you thinking that your demanding of immediate info, and your rudeness, was not intentional.  no one here is trying to be unkind to you, but you might consider that sometimes your posts do come across as rude.  you have a right to ask your questions, but you do not have a right to demand only the responses that make you happy.  please give some thought to your responses.

They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

I took it as truthful humor, not sarcasm. It answered the question in the title. It would be the easiest way. Then he went on to answer the question he was really asking.

I think the problem is Joelel didn't realize it is so simple. With a bit of practice, you learn to pick them up and poke their head in the hole. They walk in from there. It is scary the first few times, but becomes quite routine after doing it a few times.

You could always keep the screen seperate, try to get the queen and her attendents to stand in the little hole while you try to staple the screen back over the cage.

It helps to have them trained to commands such as "STAY" before doing that. grin

I did too and I even laughed as I read the initial response.

That's OK folks, If you want to believe these people who sell thousands of queens stand around catching bees one at a time and stick them in a hole,be my guest believe it. Before I ask the question we was already doing it an easier way then catching them and sticking them in the hole. Now I already figured out a real easy way,if you want to know ask me.

To start with I only seen them stick a queen in the hole,then later on it had attendants in the cage also. I wonder how they got in there ? I still have a better easier way and not get stung.Ask me.

P.S.The question was,how do they get the queen AND attendants in the cage,not just the queen.

If you know the easy way,what is your question? Seems you know the answer before you ask.

We was already doing it a easier way then sticking them in a hole but still was not easy enough. So I ask the question,then after I ask I thought of a real good easy way. If you want to know ask me.

 Before I ask the question we was putting the cage with sugar water in it in a muff with the bees and trying to get them to craw in,well that took a long time and that is when I ask the question. Then after I ask the question I thought,If you want them in the cage,leave the top of the screen half open and stick a funnel in the opening slanted a little to the end and shake them in the funnel and they slide right in the cage.Pull the funnel out and fold the screen over. You see we raise our queens in a queen rearing kit,so when you take the queen off the frame in a queen protector,the nurse bees are all over it,so you just open the protector and shake queen and nurse bees right in the funnel into the cage.Real easy.

I can pick the queen up, stick her in the hole, add 4 attendants in less time than you can set the funnel.
