Hey Folks, I noticed that this year Mann Lake has switched to using plastic queen cages inside plastic package boxes for their bee deliveries. A few people were unsure about how to use them, so I figured I would post a few pictures and explanations to avoid any bee genocides.
|The pink bar used to suspend the queen cage in the package can be snapped off the lid. Then it can be used as a bar to suspend the queen cage wherever you want it.|
|Gently insert the clip end into the grille on the side of the queen cage. Again, be sure not to catch any part of the bees inside. Be gentle.|
|One of the greatest advantages of the JZ-BZ queen cage is at the bottom. See the bar at the bottom? It pops out.|
|The new plastic packages. Each side is a door that opens up. Be careful NOT to open these until you have removed the feeder can and the queen cage.|
