Metal Queen Clip Catcher
An essential item for marking and examination of the Queen, this clip catcher allows for capturing without direct handling.
Simply place over the comb and press the clip between the thumb and forefinger to open the clip when ready to capture your Queen. The slots allow any worker bees gathered to easily escape without risk of losing the Queen.
Mark the Queen on the thorax with the appropriate colour for the year.
Mark as follows:
White: Year Ending in 1/6
Yellow: Year Ending in 2/7
Red: Year Ending in 3/8
Green: Year Ending in 4/9
Blue: Year Ending in 5/0
