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.

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.

Hi Allen,I am truly sorry for thinking you was making a smart allic remark. I didn't know beekeepers really caught bees and stuck them in the little wooden hole and maybe even hurting their head hitting them on the side of the hole. I would think someone could think of a much easier way as I did.
 Thank You,John

No prob, there normally 3 or 4 ways you can do any one task and sometimes bee keeps come up with some really neat ways to do things.   Maybe one day there would be an auto loader that shoots 5 bees and a queen through a straw with an air jet into a cage (pat. pending).  Who knows?

That would bee nice.  Of course, then Joel would stop getting what he really wants--attention.

My advice, just responding to his jabs.  Like any schoolyard pest, he'll go away eventually.

Those are II (instrumentally inseminated) breeder queens, they are pure bred stock. Someone will buy them to raise open mated queens with, they are queen makers.

I think i'll stick with my dollar funnel,maybe drill a larger hole on the end of the cage. Stick the funnel in the hole,slide a queen and 5 attendants in, stick in the plug. Do one in about 5-10 seconds.

Man,if I get any smarter I don't know what i'll do.

Hey, this is fun.....

They say it is a very fine line between genius and idiot.
I think I know one genius who stepped over the line.
Not calling no names, tho.  :lau:

Most Queen breeders I know that ( operate on a large scale) rear Queens to sell, put the Queen cell in a mating nuc and let it hatch. A time later when they see the queen is laying remove her and several workers one at the time and place them in the cage head.

To take a queen directly from a queen rearing kit and cage her to be introduced directly in the colony is something new to me. More time consuming and running the risk of loosing her on her mating flight.

Different strokes for different folks.

If you know it "all", why are you still learning? That is also time wasted. :)doak
