Holds the Queen gently allowing you to mark or examine her.
Small - 37mm wide at base
Large - 45mm wide at base
Made of clear plastic so you can see your queen. The bottom is screened so you can easily mark her. Simply scoop up your queen and gently nudge her down with the soft foam plunger until her back meets the screen. Now you can safely mark her with a Queen Marking Pen.
About this item
It’s actually still quite small, even though it’s the large. I have another one and would say it’s twice as big, but should be fine.
Great price and quick delivery.
For the money it is fine. The bottom of the pot does pop off quite easily but I suppose it stops you potentially squashing a bee with the plunger.
should help me to be able to attempt to ID species - I hope
The end the tube could have a thread on it. This would make it more secure when pressure of plunger is applied to it. The end of plunger will be forced off when pressure is applied, it did for me!
