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 10” hive tool is designed to avoid damage to the ears of frames and frame rests. Like our other hive tools, this tool is used as a lever to remove frames from hive bodies and medium supers. Instead of prying and breaking propolis on the ends, this tool is designed to pry the frames out by lifting from the center of a frame's top bar. The unique Z configuration of this hive tool provides more leverage for prying out frames.
