I've read numerous times in threads that people recommend a push in cage for queen introduction. I was wondering - those of you that have experience with them, could you please elaborate on the pros and cons of the push in cage?
Also, where did you get your push in cages? did anyone make their own? If so, please explain how.
I haven't handled a queen bare-handed and I am a little hesitant to have to do so - for fear of harming her. Some have suggested to practice on drones - I will definately do that as I want to raise and mark queens on my own at some point. But until then, what is your routine when you let the queen go and slap the cage over her?
Thank you for your time
