    Default Queen catcher clips

    I have the opportunity to purchase 1000 queen catcher clips. I can offer these to others for a min order of 10 at the cost of about $1.60 each that includes all postage etc. Price at this time is estimate and subject to change if the cost to me changes.

    Here is a picture of the type of queen catcher.

    Shipping will be Priority flat rate small box for $5.40 I am rolling the cost of pay pal fees into it all and it works out to $16.12 total for 10 clips. $6.12 of that is postage and pay pal fees per order. Orders for more than 10 I will have to figure out. The pay pal fee does not work out the same per clip and the postage will go up.

    I am guessing at how many clip will fit in a flat rate box as well. So I hope I can get 10 of them in that box.

    Buy a queen muff and use your finders I injured more than anything. Have to be precise and get them in before the close. Use your fingers a lot faster.

    The original post will no longer allow me to edit it. So I cannot add updates.

    So far I have 120 clips spoken for from this group and 125 from Beekeepers forums dot com. For a total of 245.

    It will take me a while to get them ordered. so set tight.

    dixie, I have a list on my computer with everyone's name on it. yours included.

    It looks like I will be able to place the order next Thursday or Friday. It takes a few days to get sent to me maybe a week. and then I will be contacting those that posted here with information on how to place an order and make payment.

    Pay Pal sorts out the whole username real name confusion. If a payment clears and it has an address with it. the order ships.

    A word or two of caution when using multiple catchers at one time. I imagine you will number each catcher. This is obvious. Now the important part. When moving from Nuc to Nuc catching queen do not make the mistake I once made. It takes time to remove every last nurse bee so I just left a few in with the queen. When I looked in the box these few nurse bees had slipped into the neighboring caught queen and were stinging her to death. So the solution is to remove all nurse bees or provide a holding area where the nurse bees cannot slip out and move right into a nearby catcher. Love these catchers--this is the easiest and safest way to move queens I've found.
