Bee Smokers for beekeepers

Directions - GPS: S 25.87756 E 028.17355

Another essential beekeeping tool. Every time you go to a hive, to inspect internally, smoke the bees. The effect renders the most aggressive bee colony to become lethargic and less active.

Aside from creating a cause-and-effect reaction, the honeybees also consume honey and struggle to fly as well as sting.

Hi there,

"As I was placing my stunning new beehives on their new locations,  another swarm just arrived so please make it 2 new beehives for the 25th FEB. If we can have them ready & post them on the 25th, they may arrive sooner rather than later. " ~ Sha Ara

More about Bee Smokers

Good practice includes smoking bees before you start an internal inspection. You can use cardboard, cow dung and pine needles as the accepted favourites. Do not use any material with ink or plastic or any chemically treated fuel. It is wise to keep matches in the cubbyhole or smoker itself. So you can always light your fuel of choice at the apiary site.

Some bee smokers have a heat guard and some don't. This is neither here nor there. Be sure to maintain your bee smoker with regular cleaning and careful storage. It should last you many seasons.

Hive Tools - essential for accessing hive chambers & more

This tool is like the pen to Shakespeare. It is the primary utility at the apiary site when conducting internal inspections and working the hive.

One uses it to move frames around, loosen propolised frames and hive components, lift frames and open brood and super chambers to give you some examples.
