As a first year beekeeper i just discovered a drawback to the "flat" hive tool. If you are clumsy enough, as I was, and drop it it will go all the way to the bottom of your hive. Boy did that make the bees upset. Hopefully I didn't do any damage to the queen. Fortunately it was on one end of the hive where there were fewer bees and no brood. That is one way to need to do a complete inspection.

Oops!

:eek:

I put a lanyard on mine, I'm too old to keep forgetting it and tired of picking it up when I drop it. Don't forget it or lose it with the lanyard clipped to my belt loop!
