A BEEKEEPERS FAVORITE: Used when harvesting honey regardless of having one hive or 10,000. The hard-to-replace tool when needing to remove cappings from honey frames before extracting.
HOW IT WORKS: The multiple tines are used to pick at cappings to expose the delicious honey underneath each capping. Even when using a knife or other uncapping tool, these scratchers are essential for opening the cappings other tools can't get to.
OTHER USES: Capping scratchers can also be used to break open drone cells to disrupt the varroa reproduction life cycle or to inspect growing drones for varroa mites.
DESIGN: Strong tines for picking at cappings are attached to the molded plastic body so it's durable and can be cleaned with soap and water.
