Smoker, putty knife for scraping comb, lots of bottled water. I also take a portable plastic folding table for a work surface that's easily hosed off.

Also queen catcher clips - at least 2 because the plastic ones break at the worst possible times!

Insulation, caulking. Whether or not your putting things back together it can come in handy to shrink the void while your working and seal off any cracks and hole you do not want them disappearing into. Also bee Dunn. Don't spray the bees with it but you can use it to corral them as your finishing up
