$6.10 Excluding GST
Hive World’s Plastic Handle Capping Scratcher is a durable tool with a molded plastic handle to comfortably fit your hand. The metal tines easily scratch away the honey cells ready for extracting. Ideal for using with manuka honey as the action of the tines helps liquefy the thick honey to help it to flow easier.
This tool is also useful for checking for varroa in your drone brood by pushing into the capped cells and lifting out the white larvae – easy to see any mites.
