Can't quite work out whether this has the desired effect on the bees. Nice idea though - more testing required by me - the bees don't seem to vanish down into the frames quite as fast as they do when they get smoke over them.
Very easy to use, better than traditional smoker (I couldn't keep it alight long enough) . My only problem was the way it was packaged, not very good as it leaked in transit, but I phoned and was sent replacement that was well packed and arrived intact. Thanks Omlet for a good product.
I thought the idea of liquid smoke rather than smokey smoke was brilliant,. I added the water and it does have a rather nice smokey smell(!). However, when I had another beekeeper come over and help me check my bees, he said that he thought it was going to stain the frames as the few sprays he gave made a slight mark on them. I've since gone out and bought a traditional smoker to use as I don't want my frames stained with the liquid smoke. I still think it's a great idea, but am going to be using the traditional smoker for a while yet I think.
