Today I was is the bee shop and ran into an old timer who has 1700 hives. He told me he hasn’t used smoke in 6 years, in stood he uses 2 tea spoons of Honey B Healthy in a quart spray bottle. Sprays the bee and then goes to work on the hives. Any input on the Honey Bee Healthy in stood of smoke I like the idea of not using smoke this summer to dry

Thoughts
Thanks

Hmmm insted uses HBH I love the stuff but at a cost of 25 dollars per quart. Smoke is cheap real cheap. and it works better then HBH. granted bees are calmer with it but not allways and they can get into a robbing problem when you use HBH.
