What Items do You Need to Start Beekeeping?

Beekeeping Equipment

The quickest and easiest way to begin beekeeping is to purchase a Backyard Beekeeping Kit. These kits have the basics you need to start.
  • Flat metal top
  • Inner cover
  • Deep brood box with frames and foundation
  • Entrance reducer
  • In-hive feeder
  • Solid bottom board
We recommend a hive stand that will keep your hive elevated making it harder for pests to get at and into your beehive. It also protects your wood components from deteriorating and raises the hive to a height that is easier to access for work.

Some kits also come with accessories & clothing that include essential tools and protective gear:
  • 3 x 6” smoker
  • Smoker fuel
  • Hive tool
  • Bee brush
  • Beekeepers suit with Veil
  • Beekeeping gloves

Our Monthly Buying Guide illustrates the best times to purchase supplies that coincide with beekeeping season.
