Over the last few days I've been going through all of my splits and swarms and I've been marking the queens. Yesterday I had a queen faint after I marked her in my plunger style marker. She was out for a good ten minutes. I thought I saw her face was stuck in the foam and I wondered if I had to much pressure on her. Slowly she kept coming back to life. Today same situation, but I was looking for this to happen and I was able to get her out right quick. It's almost like the foam is to course and it's the perfect dimension to trap the queens head. Has anyone else had these experiences? This plunger looks kinda cheap and I'm wondering if there's a brand name that you all can recommend? Thanks for your input and time.
