It quickly and effectively removes bees from honey supers with no offensive odor. A few sprays of Bee Quick is applied to a Fume Pad (board) which is then placed on top of the honey super. The bees are driven downward to evacuate the super so that you can remove it.
8 oz. bottle.
I was given some Honey-B-Gone to try by a fellow beekeeper, but didn't particularly like the smell. So thought I would give this a try--even though it is more expensive. It worked just fine, but it smells almost the same (weird cherry/almond scent)--so will use Honey-B-Gone in the future and save money.
Great stuff... only caution, don’t overdo it, use recommended amount. I slightly used a pump or two over recommended amount and on a 4 super hive, the were bees coming out of the entrance to escape the smell, which isn’t too bad ... to humans.. Overall.. good stuff
No offensive smell. I rather like the almond smell; however, the bees don't like it. I sprayed my fume board lightly and it cleared my supers quite well without running the bees out of the hive.
Honey Bees had invaded our house under a facel board and then into a rock fireplace. We used this inside the fireplace vents to chase the bees back outside to a bee trap without killing the bees.
