So bee escapes are only used to give the bees a one way passage out of honey supers?
If one goes to Bee Quick or blowers the bee escapes are not needed........ Right?
Thats right Cademan,I've never used a blower before,But I use Bee Quick alot.The way I do it is,after I take the super off lay it upon something then place a bath towel across the top with Bee Quick on the towel,the bee's leaves in a hurry.>>>>Mark
Is Bee Quick practical as one gets more hives?? How many treatments per quart/gallon??
Thanks for the kind words.

This is a frequently-asked question, and
it is answered here:
While your mileage may vary depending upon
temperature, humidity, barometric pressure,
and application technique, most people will
find that a single bottle lasts several
Gallons are only needed by the larger beekeepers.
We sell them
Bee-Quick is not only "practical", it has
nearly eliminated Bee-Go and Honey-Robber
from competition among the larger beekeepers,
who use a repellent precisely because other
methods are "impractical", and Bee-Go/Honey-Robber
are OHSA problems just waiting to happen.
Repellents do scale well. Other approaches
don't. The other techniques are too
labor-intensive, and labor cost is the largest
expense in beekeeping.
