or take a thin strip of duct tape. attach duct tape to cage leaving a few inches of tape free (don't cover screen). remove one frame. put thumb tack through free end of tape into the middle frame. hang cage, screen out, in space made by removing frame. don't bother with attendants. don't worry about candy. check back in a few days and if queen is not released and they have accepted her, release.
the hardest part is knowing if they have accepted her. if you have doubts, leave her caged. i have forgotten queen cages and when i go back, she's fine. they'll take care of her though the screen.
if you have to turn her lose, and it's one of those wood cages with the screen, just hold the cage low or between frames and peel the screen off. don't mess with the corks or candy.
don't make simple jobs hard. there are enough hard jobs that can't be made simple. :-D
