LT, wooden box is a "smoke-up" box, when I shake bees take off a lid from a hive you want to shake, put a excluder on with a" smoke-up box" smoke the bees up through to the top, take off five to seven pounds of bees bump them into your holding cages and repeat the process.Keith, What is the wooden box with the dividers used for? Also how is the top configured to dip bees? Thanks
JM, I have about 30-40 holding cages & 10 smoke-up boxes.Keith:
How many shaker boxes do you have. I'd imagine you would want 5-7 of them and with a helper, you do the 50-70 pounds per hour? So you smoke the bees up from one hive for 30 seconds or so then gives them a chance to go up? Then smoke again? How long does the process take?
