Hey just joined the group. I'm glad there's somewhere for beekeepers around the country to ask questions.
I'm a small time beekeeper I run 30 hives and tinker with queen rearing. I am in need of the diagram of how to construct package bee cages and what size cans do you use. If it is out there what's a good design on a funnel?

I haven't put my hands on one yet but I've heard good things about them.

The cans are tricker, I believe it's a standard 32 oz can and special equipment is needs if you want to put syrup in them.

There are plans on this site to build them, I think the correct size screen is tough to buy in small quanities.

The cages are easy to build so I have been told. I just can't find what the measurements are do you know where it is on here? The can and the canning process is a mystery to me. I can't find any information on how anyone does it. I see people doing it, But I can't find the info on what the mix is on the sugar syrup or how it's loaded and sealed.
