Bee GoŽ works remarkably well removing honey and doesn't upset the bees! One person alone can take off more honey than two people using a blower, which is why we do not sell blowers. When you put a fume pad on top of a super you will be amazed at how quickly the bees vacate the premises. This chemical makes a hard, hot job enjoyable. Bee GoŽ has a very, very bad odor and will run bees off capped honey but not brood, It will not leave this odor in your honey if you follow directions and remove immeditately after it has worked. We also recommend storing your used fume pads away from anywhere you can smell them. (cannot be shipped by air).
This stuff works as advertised, but it is nasty. The odor is incredibly strong and very persistent. If the smell of sour milk vomit offends you, then pick another fumigant.
I used this product once and took the remainder to household hazardous waste recycling. My opinion is this stuff is too powerful and too nearly toxic to use around food. Read about the main ingredient Butyric anhydride on-line and decide for yourself.
