Years of experience, considerable thought, and careful craftsmanship by one of the country’s leading queen producers has brought the California Mini Queen Cage to queen breeders big and small. Its size makes this queen cage easy to insert between the frames without damaging the comb or disturbing the hive. The fine screen keeps the queen protected and it is pushed flat to the cage during manufacturing to reduce the chance of injury to the beekeeper handling them. Candy tubes are not filled. You will need nulomoline syrup (Item # QR100) and powder sugar to make the candy.
