If you don't like traditional smokers this is the modern alternative - liquid smoke. It works in the same way as the smoker, making bees calm when you are working with them, but you simply spray the solution. You will receive 250ml of concentrated liquid smoke in this bottle, which can be poured into a trigger sprayer and topped up with water.

The concentrate needs to be diluted as follows: 1 part concentrate to 20 parts water. This should be enough for up to 9 refills of the trigger sprayer, which will last around a year of beekeeping.

Easy to use and no risk to setting fire to something - Hants,

Very happy with this product. Calms my bees very well as in the past, they have been very grumpy. Highly recommend this product.


liquid smoke -

Excellent! It's easy to use, economical, and the bees respond in exactly the same way as they would with a more conventional smoker. We live in a high fire risk area and would not be able to use anything else. Result!


Preferred to over traditional smoker -

We have recently started beekeeping, and I opted for this product, but my husband has persued the traditional smoker option. I'm normally out and about ready to inspect the bees by the time he's lit his smoker, and if not carefully placed, you end up getting a face full of smoke which can almost literally end in tears. There have been times where the smoker has either died down or gone out when we need it most, so in that respect I'd go for liquid smoke any day. It also seems to work just as quick as the smoker, but perhaps lasts a little longer as it evaporates rather than instantly dissipates. I'm all for tradition, but give this modern twist a chance.


does the job -

We have not used alternative products so have no comparison but have found that this product does the job and are happy with our purchase.


Liquid concentrate -

I misunderstood how this product worked - I have a traditional wooden hive so am not happy spraying a wet solution onto the wood and also I do not want to wet my bees with the solution. I thought the liquid concentrate was going to produce 'smoke' once mixed with water but sadly this wasn't so. I can however see it may be better used on the plastic 'Omlet' hives. The liquid concentrate certainly smells like smoke though! I will be interested to hear of any other bee keepers experience with this product.
