A plastic queen cage is a specialized beekeeping tool that is used to safely cage and protect queen bees while inspecting the hive or transporting the queen between hives.

The plastic queen cage typically consists of a small plastic cage with a cap or plug on each end. The cage is designed to be small enough to fit between the frames of the hive, but large enough to accommodate the queen bee. The cap or plug on each end of the cage helps to protect the queen and prevent her from escaping, while also allowing for easy insertion and removal from the hive.

Plastic queen cages are a valuable tool for beekeepers, as they allow for the safe and easy handling of queen bees during hive inspections and transportation. By using a queen cage, beekeepers can protect the queen from damage or harm while moving her between hives and can ensure that she is kept safe and secure during the entire process.
