    So I used Bee-Go because of this thread and it worked like a champ. But, I left my boards in the back of my truck and it was a warm night. The wind was just right for the draft to come in the front door of the house. Boy oh Boy was the wife unhappy when she figured out why there was this faint smell of puke wisping through the house. Not to mention the honey spill in the Kitchen after I forgot to shut off the valve on the extractor when the bucket filled.

    (I know old thread).

    If you had used Honey robber instead, there would have only been that pleasant cherry aroma in the house.

    I try to leave the fume boards in the beeyard , if it will be convenient to pick them up for the next yard to pull. Otherwise if you have to bring them home, put them in doubled up large garbage bags and keep them as far from the house as possible.

    If you spill the BeeGo use household ammonia on it. Kills the odor fast! Spilled a pint bottle in my pickup last week and got some nasty looks at every stop light on the way home. Sprayed it with a little ammonia and presto, no more smell. BeeGo works the best, by far, of any of the fume products. If you're only pulling a few hives any of them will work; when you're looking at several hundred supers you need BeeGo unless you just plain enjoy sitting in a beeyard waiting for something to happen and watching your truck rust.

    I'm just curious, If you were to get Bee-go on something or accidently spray it somewhere you didn't intend to spray it, how would you get the smell out?

    If you had taken a little time to actually read the thread you would have found that the answer to your question is a scant three posts back from it.

    Without looking into it, I would be concerned about what fumes are released (if any) mixing ammonia with an acid.

    Ammonia is a [weak] base, it will [help] neutralize an acid. Your kidneys make ammonia to neutralize excess acid in the body. Ammonia is a precursor to the formation of numerous other substances in the organic chemistry of living things.

    Mixing ammonia with chlorine can be bad, as it will convert to nitrogen and hydrogen chloride, and the hydrogen chloride will convert to hydrochloric acid on contact with atmospheric humidity (which is why you don't want to mix ammonia and chlorine cleaning products)...and if there is enough excess chlorine you will produce nitrogen trichloride (NCl3), which will go BOOM! rather easily.

    So how long does it take for bee quick to work? It'sabout 90* here so maybe tthat's why it's slow to work? I read this thread front to back and one poster says a few minutes but I've still got bees in a box that I put a fume board on an hour ago. There are much fewer bees but there are still far too many?
    Thanls
    BTW I'm using benzaldehyde not actual bee quick. BQ wasn't available.

    Bee go! Works quick.

    Funny, stupid story. Had a beekeeping friend whose son filled a small squirt gun with bee go and took it to school. He used it on some of his tormentors ........... they had to go home to change. He got suspended............

    you know what else works....that Resuce fly trap stanky stuff. Bees bail in a few minutes.
    I had troubles with flys by the thousands around my topbars, I hung one of the rescue traps within 10 foot from them
    and I had 3 mini swarms queens and all within a hour.
    After loosing 4 swarms in the first week using this stuff, I suddenly realized why they kept absconding.
    I moved the fly traps all to late, I lost all colonies except 1 of the 7 topbars.

    Well I decided to look at some instructions and it made all the difference. With a black metal fume "board" AND hives in the sun this stuff is amazing. I had basically written it off as BS but the supers were cleared in less than a minute. It surprised me completely. If a hive wasn't in the sun I placed the board in the sun for a little while and it worked almost as well.
    Still NOT applicable for a comm or heavy hobby user. Or for anyone with a problem getting the tops hot.

    So C, which one were you referencing? BG or BQ?
