Bee fume?
« on: May 07, 2016, 11:24:07 pm »
Looking for opinions on best product for a fume board!? I went with "honey b gone" because it's just essential oils. Anyone care to share their experience? What's the best product to keep from harming the colony?

I use "Honey Bandit" when I fume ( not very often). A bottle goes a long way. You don't heed much to do the job.

I don't think that's true at all.  Bee go is butyric acid and smells like vomit on steroids.  Honey robber smells like cherry flavored vomit... Bee quick and the knock offs of it smell like almond extract aka benzaldehyde.
