Stainless Steel Smoker
Beekeepers use smoke primarily to disguise the alarm pheromones bees release upon detecting intruders.
Using a bee smoker calms the bees and is crucial for effective beekeeping.
Feeder Box - Amish Made!
These durable feeder boxes, expertly crafted by the Amish of Ohio, are designed for longevity.
This 10-frame version can accommodate up to 3 gallons of sugar water.
Feeder boxes enable your bees to feed inside the hive, providing them with direct access to food even during cold or rainy weather.
The Hive Tool is essential for beekeepers, designed for scraping comb, prying hive boxes, lifting frames, and removing nails.
It's a versatile, must-have tool with a straight, sharp end and a curved end, plus a cut-out for easy storage.
Wooden Entrance Reducer
Our entrance reducers safeguard honey bees by controlling hive entrance size.
The smallest opening is used in early spring when the colony is most vulnerable. Larger openings are used as the colony grows through summer.
By late summer, the reducer can be removed for full entrance defense by the mature colony.
Metal Mouse Guard
Our metal mouse guards keep mice from chewing into wooden beehives over winter.
The dual-purpose design has "N" shaped cutouts to allow bees entry and exit while blocking mice when facing down.
Alternatively, small holes only allow air circulation while preventing bee escape - ideal for transporting hives.
Wax-Coated Entrance Reducer
The wooden entrance reducer features adjustable notches to help manage hive security.
The smallest notch aids defense in early spring when colonies are vulnerable. Larger notches accommodate expansion in summer.
By late summer, the reducer can be removed for full entrance defense by mature colonies. This tool enables adjustable security during growth.
These elbow-length leather gloves, made from sheepskin, offer robust protection for beekeepers.
The long cloth extending from the leather to the elbow is designed to fit comfortably under your bee jacket.
The gloves are cinched at the ends to prevent bees from getting inside. They come in a universal size, with a loose fit that provides better protection against stings.
Plastic Queen Excluder
A plastic excluder helps control where the queen lays her eggs, ensuring she only does so in the deep brood boxes and not in the frames intended for honey harvesting.
You place it between the top deep brood box and the lowest medium super box.
These plastic excluders are as durable as their metal counterparts, but are more affordable and lighter, making them a practical choice for beekeepers.
Oval Bee Escape
This oval bee escape conveniently fits into the center hole of Hoover Hive and Nubees inner covers.
It facilitates the gentle removal of bees from honey supers earmarked for harvest. Simply place the oval bee escape in the inner cover hole, and position the cover between the super to be harvested and the remaining hive boxes.
Over a few hours, bees exit the honey supers through the one-way oval bee escape, preventing their return.
8-Frame Hive Stand
Hive stands are crucial for safeguarding your bees.
By elevating the hives, predators like skunks, raccoons, and opossums must stand on their hind legs to reach the hive, exposing their vulnerable bellies.
This allows the bees to defend themselves by stinging the soft underbelly of the attacker.
Frames sold separately.
Metal Queen Excluder
Manage your hive efficiently with a durable metal excluder.
The precisely spaced wires allow worker bees to pass through freely while restricting the larger queen to the brood nest below.
Metal excluders have advantages over plastic models. They resist propolis buildup and burr comb that can clog the excluder over time.
10-Frame Hive Stand
Elevate your beehives with our sturdy 10-frame hive stand.
This stand raises your hives off the ground, keeping them safe from predators like skunks and raccoons.
Sturdy construction and an elevated design help protect your bees while making hive inspections more comfortable for the beekeeper. Frames and hive box sold separately.
For beginners, essential supplies include a bee hive kit, protective suit, tool kit, frame set, and a supplier to get a colony from.
