Got this with my Beehaus but not tried it - went for a traditional smoker as I thought that it might taint the hive/frames or stick around too long and disturb the bees. I have read that others swear by it and some just use plain water in a spray.
My ex-'mentor' bought a bottle to try and only used it once - said it upset his bees - but I don't know how long ago that was so could be the recipe changed...Omlet should have trialed stuff like that before issuing it so should be safe shouldn't it???
Really don't know about this one, as above my original mentor from about 12 years ago said he tried it but would never touch it again. I've never really had any desire to try it since then and I've always been happy with my wood smoker.

That made me laugh. Reminds me of a post on here that said the beehaus had been extensively tested for over two years by many exprienced beeks! As far as I could ascertain, they were a tiny bunch of two (relative novices?), along with the consultant (Robin), for one season.
With regards to liquid smoke: this is available from 'well known' suppliers and has been for some time. So, well tried and tested by someone else. Whether good, bad, ugly, or indifferent, results might be another matter. The manufacturer will say it is better than a smoker, wouldn't they!
