J-Hook: This hive tool is one of our favorites. It is particularly good for pulling frames for insepction.  The J hook really helps remove the frames with minimal damage to the hive and the bees. Sometimes, frames are difficult to lift out because of propolis and burr comb. The J-Hook and notch on the end of the tool acts as a lever to lift the frames up makes hive inspections easier.

The flat end of the tool has a beveled sharp edge that is good for scraping unwanted wax and propolis build-up within your hive.
