    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?

    Thanks for the kind words.

    This is a frequently-asked question, and
    it is answered here:
    http://www.bee-quick.com/bee-quick/much.html

    While your mileage may vary depending upon
    temperature, humidity, barometric pressure,
    and application technique, most people will
    find that a single bottle lasts several
    seasons.

    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.
