Using the Stainless Steel Smoker:

When honeybees sense smoke in the hive, they will start eating up stored honey in case they need to abandon the hive due to fire. This gorging of honey causes the abdomen to become enlarged making it harder for honey bees to sting. The smoke also camouflages alarm pheromones. Once lit, just puff a bit of smoke at the entrance and top of the hive.

Our Recommendations:

With all smokers that only have the lifting plate at the bottom of the burning pot, we highly recommend finding a steel can that fits inside to ensure longevity of your smoker. You will end up replacing the can every few years but your smoker will last for years to come. In terms of fuel, we recommend using something like burlap. We have found over our years of beekeeping that burlap holds coals nicely to ensure you will have smoke when you need it.
