Beekeeping Tools

The various tools in the beekeeper's tool box are similar to other tradesmen's and some domestic tools, but some have developed over many years until they have become distinct and specialist types.

Tools need to be kept in good order, clean and corrosion free. "Clean" in beekeeping terms means sterile as well. Any sharp edges should be honed regularly.

The list that follows will eventually become links, like the ones down the left hand side of this page.
