A good quality smoker is essential in every beekeeper’s kit, to help calm the bees before opening a hive. This model is my favourite because it has the inner ventilated insert that you can pull out to clean out contents. Its stainless steel body is long lasting. The hook at the back is handy to hook onto your tool box safely while you work, and the guard wire protects from burns. Never skimp on quality when it comes to smokers. This one delivers.
