    Could someone tell me if it is normal for the FGMO to smoke very heavily?
    Im concerned that i might have the wrong FGMO.

    Hi
    Dr pedro has researched it at length , and I would be very reluctant to use anything else.
    One of the criterea is the viscosity.
    I tried it last Saturday for the first time and it did not disturb the bees unless one is too close with the nozzle to a bee , like 1/4 inch. It fries it .Otherwise I detected no agitated behavior and no dead bees .the fogger is somewhat difficult to get going. I used a propane torch. but once it is lit it keeps on going.

    I beg your pardon , I just realise I did not answer the question correctly.
    Yes the fogger does smoke heavily , which appears normal to me. It does the job nicely . You can see the fog coming out on the top of the hive . Just make sure you got the proper oil as recommended.
