Beekeeping Tool Kits

£19.75£21.25 inc VAT

This Beekeeping Tools Kit Contains:

1 x Smoker (Choose between Stainless Steel or Galvanised)
1 x Queen Bee Marker Pen (Choose Colour)
1 x Hive Tool – Stainless Steel – Half Red
1 x Uncapping Fork – with Bent Tines
1 x Frame Lifter
1 x Queen Marker Cage

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.
The frame lifter is a nice way of removing frames during an inspection and keeping your hands away from the bees.
The uncapping tool can be used to open up capped cells of honey.
I like to have a queen cage and marker pen with me to mark the queen.

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