looks good. I use an owens bee vac. I made a lot of different ones but opted to purchase one and I love it. I can take it up ladders and in trees perfectly. I used it twice tonight!

nice pitures - only thing i see that could be tweeked is the 90 degree angles

not so much the one on the vac side but the one that will be sucking bees - the 90 will be a solid wall that they will smack into and die

i posted so bee vac pictures yesterday - check them out also -

mine might to be perfect yet but some ideas for you also -

let us know now your works - if you can get a video of it in action !!!!

we had a swarm call yesterday but the 20 minute drive and they were gone - just a hand full of bees but the tree is marked and they will swarm to that tree again !!! gave them our card and told them we will see them soon!!!

I just build the "perfect beevac mark III", always making a better mousetrap! Does your lid screw on and off, and how much does that weigh all together?

Does the accordion like hose damage or kill the bees. It seems like that configuration along the inside of the hose
would cause the bees to tumble and crash.

The hose works fine. It's important to have te damper on the top of he vac, that way you can make sure the suction is just strong Enough to suck up the bees without harm.
