The Honey Keeper 12-Piece Tool Kit includes essential tools needed for beekeeping. The queen bee is the most critical member of your hive, making it important to mark your queen, reducing the chance of accidentally harming her during inspection. Our kit comes with two queen marking tools to help you catch and mark the queen. The clear queen bee cage helps you easily catch the queen, while the clear queen marking tube allows you to view and mark her safely.
If you are new to beekeeping, checking your hives' frames can be intimidating. The kit includes five hive tools needed for safe beehive inspections. The beehive frame grip makes lifting and removing frames from the hive simple, while the bee brush allows you to remove bees gently from surfaces without harming them. The L and J shaped hook tools are ideal for scraping excess comb and propolis from your beekeeping equipment and the thumb hook enables you to lift and scrape the beehive frame safely.
To retrieve the honey, you will need to remove the wax cap from your honey frame. Three honey uncapping tools help with this and are very easy to use. The serrated uncapping knife removes beeswax caps on honeycomb cells, while the uncapping fork's metal tines allow you to get into the corners of odd-shaped combs to scrape open honey cells. The uncapping scraper is used to help extract honey cells from the low spots of the honey frame. The included beetle traps kill beetles that can weaken and destroy your beehive.
