“Good beekeepers have sticky hive tools and smell like smoke… – Marina Marchese”
Hassle-free beekeeping is easy when you have the right tools. We stock only the best beekeeping equipment to give you the best experience with your bees. These tools are used for easily lifting out bee frames from beehives. They are also great tools for shimmying loose any frames that are stuck together or stuck to the hive with propolis. Made from strong, hard steel they’re an absolutely essential tool for beekeepers during honey harvesting season or when they need to do hive inspections. This is your main beekeeping tool of the trade – a chippy has a hammer, a beekeeper has a hive tool. Tools should be kept clean and free from honey at all times, especially when you are inspecting a number of hives. This will help curb the transmission of common bee diseases.
