Frame lifter

Frame lifter

A simple tool, the frame lifter uses a beveled edge to slide between the bottom board and super, or between supers to allow lifting them as they become tightly "cemented" to one another by the propolis or bee glue used as a sealant for unwanted open spaces in the hive. It is a resinous mixture that honey bees collect from tree buds, sap flows, or other botanical sources. The crooked end allows reaching down and drawing a frame upward from the super.
