Professional Bee Smokers, Clearance Boards and Escapes
Mastering the art of taming bees starts with utilising the best bee smokers and clearing equipment and any serious beekeeper understands the tremendous benefits of a professional bee smoker and cannot afford to thrive without one.
Smoke is widely used when working with bees because of the lulling effect it has on the little critters. It disrupts their natural defensive instinct so they won’t sting you, thus makes it easy to work on the beehive. It can also help get move some notorious hive pests such as the common small black-hive beetle.
Professional Bee Smokers
Keeping bees is a passion project for most people who love the hobby. Having the proper equipment to service hives and harvest precious honey without harming your bees is at the top of every serious beekeeper’s list. From the correct hive tools to the suitable bee smoker, there is only one name you need to know for all your beekeeping requirements: Buzzbee.
A beehive smoker is one of the most valuable tools of the beekeeper. As per popular belief, it does not dispense smoke to put bees to sleep. Bees release alarm pheromones when they sense danger. The smoke masks these pheromones, meaning your bees remain calm and unaware of danger while you service the hive or harvest honey. The smoke also serves to make bees think there is a fire. In preparation to flee, they gorge themselves on honey, making it hard for them to sting.
Choosing the right beekeeper smoker for your hives
There are many factors to consider in choosing the right smoker for your hives. No two hives are the same, and your choice of smoker comes down to ease of use, how aggressive a particular hive is, the longevity of the burn, and much more. Here are some tips to help you choose the ideal bee smoker for sale:
Some hives require very little smoke for the beekeeper to conduct maintenance or harvesting safely. Others require more. Your smoker must be capable of producing enough smoke for you to work on your hives safely. Using too little will result in the smoke being ineffective, and using too much may be harmful to your hive.
The more aggressive the hive, the more smoke you’re likely to require. The last thing you want is for your bees to realise that something is amiss and effectively ‘sound the alarm’. Bee stings can be dangerous, both to you and your bees. Making sure your smoker is up to the task is essential for safe beekeeping.
The ideal smoker should effectively keep a burn going for longer by allowing you to control the amount of oxygen that passes through the burn. The longer you can keep producing smoke, the longer you can safely tend to your bees before refilling your smoker with smoker fuel and relighting it.
