Bee mindful that whatever goes into your smoker for 'smoker fuel' could come out as a toxic haze on your honeybees. Vital to use only 100% organic material in the smoker chamber. Bee aware of petroleum-based items, which when ignited, produce a toxic smoke. Use dry brush to start, cow or horse manure as the primary 'fuel' and from time to time, add a touch of 'green' grass or moist weeds to 'cool' your smoke. You don't need a blowtorch to work your honeybees! Blow a cool smoke, your bees will reward you for it!
