Hive tools are a must have tool for any beekeeper, as they are good for removing nails, scraping away debris and paint, as well as prying apart stubborn hive bodies and frames. They are helpful in numerous ways in and out of the bee yard, honey house and workshop.
This stainless 14” hive tool is our personal favorite for the first trip out to the yard in early spring. The extra length gives you all the leverage you need when the bees have propolized hive boxes together. The double hooked end makes it a snap to break frames free and lift them out of the hive.
