Many beekeepers like to mark the queen bee to make her easier to spot amongst the thousands of other bees. This handy gadget will make the process easy beesy. First, catch the queen with the Queen Catcher Clip and transfer into this marking tube, which is closed one end with a square, plastic grid. Use the plunger to gently push the queen upwards and the backshield will be exposed between one of the grids. The queen is now ready to mark with special paint or one of our marking pens.
This is a great tool that is gentle on the queen and you you won't need to worry about her escaping.
