Not sure yet - Matthew,

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.

Not as successful as real smoker, but less hassle - Stark,

I have tried it once, it did not seem to move the bees down into the frames as quickly as real smoke. But it is a lot less hassle than lighting a smoker and relighting it once it has gone out before you have finished your inspection of your hives.

Love the concept but bees don't seem to be playing ball - Jeremy,

I have used liquid smoke on 7 hives for a few weeks now. Six of the hives need minimal smoke or no smoke as the bees are really kind bees. The seventh hive is populated with the nastiest bunch you will ever meet and are a challenge. On this hive I usually use some smoke, I have switched to liquid smoke and it seems to irritate them. I'm still using it but deep down I think it doesn't work. But as I don't end up smelling like a kipper I am persevering with liquid smoke.

Great idea, possibly still needs a bit of work - Rachel,

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.
