I tried it this spring with disposable latex gloves and had no problems with new queens and attendants. Try catching drones first to get the touch down pat.I have seen several videos that show people just plucking queens and attendant bees off of a frame to put in a queen cage. How do you do that? Are you catching the wings, the sides of the bees, two fingers, or three? I know that I can try trial and error, but would rather not kill a queen, or get stung the first dozen times that I try something new. I do realize that I can practice on drones, I just do not have too many yet.
