Numbered disc's
« on: February 15, 2012, 05:31:51 PM »
I'm on the look for some numbered disc's to glue on my queens this season. Does anyone know where to purchase these, in the USA ? I thought they were really made for the appliance business.
I'll also need to know what type of glue to use?

I get mine from Betterbee.   They sell the fish glue with the kit or separate. Their new website sucks, so you may have to call them.

I know, but close enough for me, and thats a good price ! I just didn't want to order from Germany or England to get some. I didn't find any suppliers here. I will try betterbee. Thanks Rob

Betterbee, you would think it would be listed under Queen Rearing Equipment. No joy! Will call tomorrow.

I found a catalog from Betterbee, and they do have some.
Robo, did you make something to pick them up with for placement on queens ?

You guys are doing good research.  When you get all the info together please post in a less cryptic manner.  I would love to get some.  I think some double sticky scotch tape on a pencil would be perfect if the glue on dots is sticky enough.

At about 10.38 in the attached video, she uses a bent tool with a little water to apply the numbered disc's.
Make sure you veiw in full screen, to get some detail.
