STARTER KITS

 

Our Kit consists of:


A complete hive of your choice (flat-packed) as detailed above


"Bees at the bottom of the Garden” Book

As we recommend that all beginner beekeepers should have a book, we include this one(which we found invaluable when we started) in our pack, to enable you to enjoy the first  year of beekeeping. It is clearly written without unnecessary complications to confuse the beginner.

 

A Standard Stainless Steel smoker

Bag Of Smoker String


All in One Bee Suit

The hood is detachable but can also be thrown back when not in use. This suit has good sized pockets. In addition there is a hive tool pocket on each trouser leg and a pocket on each sleeve suitable for hive tools, queen cages or carrying an Epipen. The suit is completely secure when worn with the correct accessories. Thumb loops at the elasticated cuff keep your sleeves in place while putting on your gloves. Elasticated ankle zips on this suit make it easier to put on.
