I have always used a goose feather, the largest feathers (pinions?), which l pick up this time of year when my geese are moulting. The feather is sufficiently firm to remove bees very effectively and not soft enough for bees to get trapped in as l have seen with regular bee brushes.The title says it all.
Any recommendations for a good brush?
Thanks as always.
I've tried a goose wing, the girls really don't like it. The wing picks up a lot of stings. I'm guessing it's the flesh that's the problem, because there is little reaction if I use a goose feather. Goose feather any day of the week for me. I now have a large stash for the coming year.Forget the bee brush, waste of time and money. Use a goose wing or just cut a leafy twig from a handy nearby hedge and use that.
