These Queen Bee roller cages are ideal to use when rearing Queen Bee's either in an Incubator or in the Hive.
Can also be used with the Nicot Cupkit queen rearing system and in addtion with the Nicot queen cell cups and Nicot Cell bar block and Cup caps.
The best time to use these roller cages is at around 8-9 days after the larvae have been laid, when the queen cells have been capped and no longer need feeding. You carefully slide the roller cage over each queen cell up to the cup cap where it should sit nicely inside the roller cage. From there you can either move your roller cages into an incubator or move back into the hive to hatch.
A good thing to remember when the queens have hatched you will need to put a small amount of honey in the bottom of the roller cage or the queen will go back into the top of the queen cell thinking it is food and die.
After hatching out of the queens, it is best to leave them in the roller cage for around 24-48 hours until you introduce the new Queens to the hives.
Pack contains 50 roller cages only.
