Beekeeping Tools - Electric Bee Smoker A Bee Smoke Transmitter used to fumigate bees. Avoid hurting your bees when checking on them.
Description: The Smoke Transmitter is mainly used to inspect bee colonies, take honey, merge bee colonies and to attract queen bees.
Also known as a smoke fumigation machine, the bee smoker is used to subdue or drive bees by erupting smoke. The bees will suck up a lot of honey and exhibit avoidance behavior. After their abdomen is filled with honey, the bee is not as quick to sting and becomes more docile.
Many kinds of fuel can be used in the smoke transmitter. Any material that burns slowly and produces large amounts of non-toxic smoke to the bees can be used as fuel for the smoke pump (look for smoke bombs which do no harm to bees).
The smoke transmitter is composed of two main parts: a chimney and a bellows. The chimney is made up of a combustion chamber, a stove railing, and a cylinder cover. When in use, the hay or dead leaves are lit in the combustion chamber. Cover the cylinder and compress the bellows to let the smoke out.
