    Smoker Fuel

    Hi, Don't want to get into an argument about whether I should or should not use a smoker but is the shedded packing that comes with your purchases from Th***es any good or does it have chemicals that badly upset our bees. It lights and keeps going ok, just wondered. Thanks

    Early Choices

    Hello all, I am going to get started on this ‘Bee thingy’ next year and am reading everything I can get to make up my mind on equipment to buy.
