The Merrills Tool Box I bought at Brushy Mountain! I would not keep bees without it!

I bought all my friends bee stuff and the tool box came with it along with a frame holder and frame grip. I would not leave the house without these three tools. They make working the bees so much more pleasant!

I use a 5-gallon bucket, it's cheap (free in this case) and effective.

I use a Merrill's toolbox as well and I really like it. There's a place for everything and it can double as a swarm catcher. Still it is hard to argue with the cost:benefit of a free 5 gallon bucket.

Use an old deep hive box with plywood screwed in the bottom.   Also works as a chair when turned on its side and can hold frames if needed.   Leave it out and the bees will clean all the sticky off of it for you.

I have the merril and I have a bee brief.  Both can be used as a nuc to hive a swarm.  The merril makes a good stool to sit on.

I have to agree with danno;
It seems to me the more experienced you get the less " tools " you need too carry !
