English term or phrase: catching glass
CONTEXT: "I moved three Queens into three separate hives with my fingers. I could have used the catching glass, which is a more cautious procedure."

This is a tool to move the queens of a hive to another hive. It is a small tube made of glass with a rounded end. The bee gets caught in the tube and then, by gently blowing air through it, you can blow the queen into a cage.
