Bee Equipment

I still haven’t figured out the best way to store all the hive bodies and for that matter really the frames with foundations. They are susceptible to mold, bugs and are easily damaged. Being well ventilated is supposed to help with moths and has seemed to work but still there are lots of problems.

I have found a really good way to store all the other gear like the hive tools, veil, protective clothes and lighters. I used to keep them in a plastic box but they are flimsy, the lid is easily knocked off and being one big container it can be difficult to keep organized.

A big tool box works well.

It’s durable, has wheels, a tray for hive tools and brushes and the top lid has two compartments I put lighters in. In addition to the tray being used for normal tools it is a good place to put my wedding ring if I forgot to take it off in the house, I never go in a hive wearing a ring just in case I get stung and there is swelling, it’s not worth the risk.

Just a stay at home Dad trying to become more self sufficient in a world getting more dependent. It’s easy to get lost in all the things of the world, sometimes the best therapy is getting your hands dirty and growing something good!
