    Someday I will be able to justify it. Working my way up in Hive numbers. only at 13 now. it takes a while to treat them all. Where do you get your power from? Would an inverter on a deep cycle battery be enough?

    I power mine with an inverter attached to my truck battery.
    Yes, an inverter attached to the deep cycle battery would work, but I don't know how many hives you could do.

    An inverter is NOT the same as a generator. You connect the inverter (see below as to where to get ... HF) to your either car battery or lawnmower tractor battery. Then you plug in an extension cord (if needed) to the inverter. Then you either plug the ProVap into the extension cord (or if the EC is not needed) directly into the inverter. The inverter changes DC into AC (which is what powers the ProVap.)

    If you're using a generator, disregard the above and plug the ProVap directly to the generator.

    I use a Ryobi inverter generator to power my 110, I love it!!!


    Inverter generators are not the same as an inverter. The inverter refereed to is something that hooks up to a 12v source and inverts the DC power to AC power (110). An inverter generator is a generator that works on similar principles. Check this for a little more info: http://yamahaef2000is.com/convention...generator.html


    inverter generators are super quite and work great, they are priced accordingly...

    You can read the instructions for the ProVap 110 at the link below. Here is part of them ....

    This vaporizer is most easily used from the back of the hive, where a small () hole is drilled in the back center of the rim of the bottom board that supports the bottom brood box. This hole is needed to accommodate th////e vaporizer stem. You want the vapors to rise up through the frames throughout the hive. Using a hole in the back of the hive and at this place (we believe) is easiest as it eliminates the nuisance of flying bees.

    Read the rest here:

    I use one I purchased from HF. It's 400w (max 800) and sells for about $25. For me, it's better to use than a generator as you don't have to worry about getting out in a beeyard and not having a generator start.
