What do people who have used Honey B Gone think about the product?

I don't know its chemical composition or natural stuff.
Isn't it adding more chemicals to the honey harvest?
Not sure if worth it though.

I started using "Honey Bandit" from Mann Lake and really like it. No bad smell and it's effective. The label says "all food grade ingredients," which may not be all natural--I don't know. But if it's safe to consume by humans, some fumes from it probably won't hurt the bees or contaminate the honey.

I have used a few different ones. If you use them just don't leave it on the hive very long. If you leave it too long the stink gets into the honey.

I have used triangle escape boards for a number of years with very good success. I leave them on for 48 hours.

I've never used Honey-B-gone....but have heard it stinks and works!

I do use Bee Quick...Works great and has a pleasant smell to me, but as you know, opinions do vary! :D
