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