Boots: I wear my Dad's old Wellingtons, I make sure my pants are tucked into the boots.
When I put on my bee jacket the dogs go and sit on the couch. Not sure if they are concerned for me or themselves.
Hive Tool: This is used to open the hive,pry frames apart, and remove wax and propolis.
The bee brush is used to brush bees off of the frames when harvesting honey.
Smoker: The smoker is used when working in the hive to calm the bees.
Looking at my bee equipment has got me excited for the coming season. With today's temperature of minus 10 it seems so far off.
