FRAME GRIP: If you have used a frame grip, you love it. They are great for safely lifting frames up using only one hand. They clamp around plastic or wooden frames and securely hold them for easier inspections. The stainless steel frame grip is great to have around, especially when getting started or working with a beginner beekeeper.
WHAT ARE HIVE TOOLS FOR? Hive tools are the essential tool that all beekeepers use. They are required for separating boxes and lifting frames out of the box. While new equipment can be easily moved and adjusted, equipment that bees live in can be difficult to separate and work with over time. Hive tools are used to pry apart boxes and lift frames from the box.
SCRAPING AND PRYING: Hive tools have multiple ends designed to work in different ways. Narrow ends are used to pry boxes and frames apart and bent ends can be used to scrape comb and propolis from equipment.
