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 a 250ml bottle of concentrated liquid smoke and a 600ml trigger sprayer. Simply pour a little concentrate into the trigger sprayer, top up with water and you're ready to go!
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.
