The Frame Perch

When Bee Champions was born, several ideas were given of which one of our products would be the best seller. Surprisingly, the most popular product we carry at Bee Champions has been the frame perch.
Then again, perhaps we shouldn't be so surprised at all! The frame perch is a simple, yet extremely effective tool when it comes to backyard beekeeping. It's one of those things that is not a necessity in the strictest sense, but is very inexpensive way to make beekeeping more accessible.

The frame perch is designed to hold three frames on the side of the hive. When you are inspecting your hive, you don't necessarily want to put your frames down into the dirt or the grass, which can make the honey and nectar on a frame dirty and cause the bees unneeded grief to clean it out. With the frame perch, you can simply set your frames aside, both upright and away from dirt and grass. It is also useful when you need to inspect multiple frames at once because it eliminates the inconvenience of having to hold both frames.

You can purchase a frame perch here.

Here is a useful video of Stan Moulton explaining how to use the frame perch:
