The Nassenheider® Queen Puzzle can be sent in single form in an envelope, or - for safe parcel shipping - be plugged together by means of a coupler.
Optional moisture chamber
Into an optionally usable moisture chamber there can be put a piece of soaked material, e.g. a soaked tissue, to provide your queen bee with water during longer transport.
Additional opening in the lid
When using a sponge, the additional lid is broken out as the tissue seals the cage then. Without the opening you can trap the queen bee more gently.
Grid, mounting, food chamber
After the arrival of the queen bee in the new bee colony the Queen Puzzle can be easily hung into the hive, e.g. by means of a match. The queen bee needs some more time to eat up the food supplies (while the bee colony is eating from the other side); first after that the queen bee can get out of the cage. For that the trap under the food chamber is opened.
During this time the pheromones of the queen bee are already exhuded through the cage. So the later inclusion of the queen bee by the colony is guaranteed.
