OK-
Here is a question, plain and simple... Do you think that a slightly modified patio lantern would work as a bee smoker? You know... the decorative kind that is filled with oil, makes a bunch of smoke and supposedly repels mosquitos.

It would depend on how you modify it. I have used many makeshift smokers when I haven't had a real one handy. Usually the extent of my make shift is a small torch made with twine wrapped on the end of a stick.

Please use no oil based smoker.
How cheap do you want to go. Bee Services will sell you a new smoker for $ 25.00 plus five plugs of paper fuel which are easy to light and last and last.Janvanhamont
