I saw one for sale on a foreign website. It was basically a half-sphere of clear glass maybe the diameter of a golf ball, with a tapered stem rising from the bulb, making a hollow tube probably about 4 inches long.
The idea was that since bees always crawl uphill, you put the bulb over the queen with the end of the tube in your queen cage, and let her crawl right in along with a few assistants. It seemed like a great idea to me, but I can't find any US suppliers with them. Does anyone know where I could get one?
