Chinese Grafting Tool

The Chinese grafting tool is popular among beekeepers for queen rearing. The flexible head slides under the larvae easily allowing them to be transferred into queen cups. The spring loader plunger can then be used to gently slide the larvae into the cup reducing the risk of damage. When not in use, the plunger retracts out of the way so that the next larvae can be picked out.

The flexible spatula head of the Chinese grafting tool allows you to scoop up the royal jelly with the larvae. This is one feature that makes it so popular. The royal jelly helps prevent the larvae from drying out. The transfer of royal jelly also ensures that the larvae is well fed whilst waiting for the frame to be returned to the queen rearing colony.
