Thread: Shipping Queens

    Default Shipping Queens

    I have used Battery Boxes for shipping but am looking for some alternatives.
    What are some of you using to ship queens? I primarily use JZ- BZ cages but have California mini cages too.
    Is there anywhere besides Koehnen and Mann Lake that I should be looking?

    Koehnen 3-hole cages, and their screened shipping boxes.

    Thanks Mike. It seems like they may be out of the three hole cages. Maybe you bought them all?

    I've received queens in express envelopes from WS, DR Harbo and others. Cages glued to inserted cardboard. If it works for them ...

    Well, how many queens are you shipping at a time?
    For just a handful or less, I use an over night priority express envelop with the cages securely attached to the inside of the envelop. I've had queen shipped to me this way as well. If you are shipping more than that, Michael Palmer's way would be very hard to beat.
