    Default Shaker Box question...

    I didn't want to hijack the other thread so i started this.
    My question is when you use a shaker box, do you see any damage to the queen from being shaken into it?
    Even any ill effect, like slowing of laying or physical damage?
    thanks

    I have only been using it for a few months since Mike Palmer showed it to me but haven't seen any problems with the queens at all.

    Why do you put the duct tape around the upper end of it Keth?

    The bees don't like walking across the duct tape for some reason. It really slows them down and they don't boil out of the box much at all.
