it's a lot more expensive than smoke.
They are so divorced from their own interests that even when their own security and that of their children is finally compromised, they do not seek to avert the danger themselves but cross their arms and wait for the nation as a whole to come to their aid. Yet as utterly as they sacrifice their own free will, they are no fonder of obedience than anyone else. They submit, it is true, to the whims of a clerk, but no sooner is force removed than they are glad to defy the law as a defeated enemy. Thus one finds them ever wavering between servitude and license.

I have heard other claims that it helped with mites and other problems

I just wonder if works or just snake oil

Ditto. Just use your smoker. You will achieve the desired effect and you can direct your bees (move them where you want them or where you don't) with smoke.

It has its uses, but I think most of the claims are..well...a little over the top and never proven.

It is great for setting off robbing in the fall though.... :roll:
