Bee Vacuum complete

Regular price $150.00

When catching swarms or performing cutouts a bee vac is sometimes the only way to get the job done. Over the years we have used a few different bee vac's and feel this style is the most useful.

The bee vac comprises of a special lid and base hose and vacuum source.

To use it you get a good condition 8 frame full depth super with waxed frames and place it on the special base placeing the special lid ontop. Using the supplied ratched straps tightly strap the stack together.

The vacuuum source is connected to the lid via the orange hole and flexible pipe, the white suction tube is connected to the base the vacuume cleaner turned on and the suction adjusted using the orange valve until the bees are just picked up.

Suction control is important if its too strong the bees will be damaged in the hose, you only use just enough suction.

When the suction is turned off plug the hole to keep the bees in using the supplied plug.

Kit comprises of.
