This cypress entrance reducer has two entrance sizes notched into it. You select the size you want by rotating it 90 degrees. The small notch is for winter, the large is for spring and fall. You can also use the small entrance to stop robbing, because it is easier for the guard bees to defend. For summer, you may not need it at all. It is available in lengths for 8-Frame or 10-Frame hives. Can be used with Greenbeehives "IPK" screened bottom board, or standard pine bottom boards.
Deluxe Smoker Fuel. 1/2 lb. Raw Cotton.
Lights with a match, and smokes for hours. To use this raw cotton, you just stuff your smoker full and light the top. Puff it a few times before you close the lid, and you're off to your hives.
What I like best about this fuel, is it "seems" to go out when you set your smoker down, but with a few quick puffs it is putting out billowing smoke again! It saves fuel when you aren't using it, and is ready in seconds when you need it! It takes about 2 ounces to fill a 4"x7" smoker, so this bag will last through 4 trips to your hives.
It's easier to light than cotton plugs, and wood pellets; yet stays burning for hours. The wood pellets will burn longer, but are harder to get started. If you need more than a few hours of smoke, go with the pellets. But, if you can inspect your hives in a few hours the raw cotton wins hands down.
