Does anyone have experience with the best material to use for a crash pad for a bee vacuum? I use a set of buckets with a screen at the bottom and have been using a cut up sponge which works but could be better. I need a one piece that allows air to flow through it. Anyone have any suggestions and where did you get your material. Thanks.

How about a circle of foam (cut from a sheet of foam that would have been used to re-upholster a chair or stuff a pillow), cut to fit the bucket diameter (that's simple), and having it suspended above the bottom of the canister on a small rack (perhaps a circular rack of the kind that you might cool baked goods on) that permits air to be sucked through the entire diameter of the foam circle. Would that work?

2" thick furnace filter. The material is called filter floss. I got mine from a fellow who has an auto body shop, they use it as a particle filter for the paint booth.
