 My Glider Nips and Crabs Constantly

I have had my two sugar gliders for about 3 months now. I can say that our bond is really good! But one of my gliders craps and nips all the time. When I say she nips she doesn't bite really hard and it does not hurt that bad, but I would like it to stop. How can I teach her not to do this? And for the crabbing. She basically crabs when I am taking her out of her cage, unzipping or opening up pouches, and reaching in the pouch to scoop one up. She has never tried to bite me or lunge at me when this is happening. She just crabs really loudly and visiously, but once I get her and start giving her treats she stop and is completely fine. She like to be around me and likes to play with me its just when opening things up at reaching for them. My other glider is completely fine with it and basically never crabs or nips. Please give me tips on how to change this!

 I Need Help!! Please! <3

So I just got 2 sugar gliders, Stella and Luna! I have had them for about a week now and our bond is already starting to look amazing. I have been doing bathroom bonding and they have been crawling on me and exploring. Now here is were in need some help. I really like this method of bonding and think it is working well BUT I feel like it is teaching them that they can love on me and be with me, but also just jump off whenever they want to. How can I train my sugar gliders to stay on me? Oh course I know that they are going to jump off of me sometimes and I am prepaired for that. But for the most part, I just want to be able to walk around doing my daily tasks with them crawling on me and not constently trying to jump off. Or if that is to high of an expectation, just taking them out of their pouch, sitting on the couch in my living room, and letting them crawl on me without jumping off. What is the best way I can train them to do this? PLEASE HELP!!! <3
