Basic Kit

Robust EU Beekeeping suit. It is suitable for our climate­, is machine washable and doesn’t shrink. There is a choice of rubber or leather gloves with gauntlets – usually complete beginners go for the rubber for an ‘easier feel’. The smoker is 10cm in diameter, has a guard, insert and hanging hook and is used to calm the bees.. The high quality brush is used to gently remove the bees from the frames. The hive tool is made from stainless steel and is a multi-use tool, mainly for removing frames for inspection.
