It is always best to give the bees a little smoke and leave for a few minutes before carrying out a hive inspection.
This subdues them a little and makes the hive inspection more enjoyable.
The Hive Tool is one of the most used tools. It is used for prising apart the brood and super boxes and to get under frames to lever them up. Bees like to fill gaps and glue everything together with propolis and wax.
The flat end of the Hive is also useful for scraping propolis and wax from the frames and hive.
A Bee Brush is useful for clearing away bees to look at a frame of brood to check for eggs.
The queen clip catcher allows you to isolate the queen so that you know where she is while doing an inspection.
You can pop the queen into the plunger to gently squash her against a grid to mark her.

The Smoker is:
28cm high x 10cm diameter.
Complete with hanging hook, fire base-plate and heat shield.
Bellows made from wood and leather.
