Queen cages are used to introduce a new queen to an existing colony that have lost their queen. Our cage comes with a handy push-out section on one side which allows for the slow introduction of the new queen. Introducing the queen to the new colony by "candy" method is an excellent way of ensuring calm introduction.

The "Candy introduction" method: Break out the end of the queen cage and put a piece of marshmallow in the hole. Place the cage in the recipient hive. The worker bees will take a few hours to gnaw their way through the marshmallow, which gives the colony enough time to get used to the new queen's pheromones.

Beechwood Bees queen cages, as with all our beekeeping equipment are covered by our 100% money back guarantee. The price quoted includes VAT.
