    There's no universally agreed upon standard ink/paint nor studies of what gasses are created in their respective combustion characteristics and the ramifications on honeybees in real world smoker use. Rest assured if you use enough of it for a long enough period it'll kill something. Just like drinking too much water will kill you too. In the big picture it's not worth worrying about.

    Burlap used in the coffee bean industry contains chemical insecticides. Myself, I use old 100% cotton jeans which works remarkably well.
