Queen Work Cage

This cage is used to mark queens without having to worry about them escaping. I made this from the cage a package of bees came in. I cut round holes in each end and stapled the cuffs from an old sweatshirt to form a tight fit around my wrists to keep the queen from crawling out. I also cut an access hole in the top with a swiveling cover made from luan. Not fancy, but works well.
