    Default BetterBee queen shipping

    Got a couple queens recently and they only stapled the cages to the USPS box. When they arrived while alive they were freely moving around the box. I called and they assured me thy would create a better alternative.

    You can save shipping by having the queens emailed.

    Agreed. Ordered 4 queens a couple weeks ago and two had escaped from thier cages. I am sure its the queen producers cage but they need to staple the screen rather than having it held in place by a groove.

    I calmly scooped them up and re-caged them. A newbie would have been in trouble and these queens wanted to fly.

    Remember they are under new ownership. This is their first season hopefully they will listen to customer advise & do better in the future.
