Bee smoker fuel

Our bee smoker fuel is made using only 100% pure straw. The straw is pressed into pellets which when lit will smoulder for over 1/2 an hour. Unlike other smoker fuels the smoke our pellets produce is cool which makes a huge difference to the bees. Hot smoke can injure the bees and do more harm than good when trying to calm a colony. The cool 30°c smoke produced by our smoker fuel is perfect for calming bees without undue stress and strain. Available in 2kg & 9kg sacks. We also sell lighter sticks in packs of 10. Our 2kg packs include 10 lighter sticks.

2kg bag - £7.95 In stock
9kg bag - £17.95 In stock
10 lighter sticks - £0.50 In stock

More info

The cool 30°c smoke produced by our smoker fuel is perfect for calming bees without undue stress and strain. We have noticed that when using our smoker pellets our bees are calmer than they are when we use wood-chip or sawdust. The straw formula we use also ensures that there is less tar in the smoke. Less tar in your smoke means ultimately less tar in your honey.
