The smoker is one of the most iconic peices of beekeeping equipment and is favored by most beekeepers as a way to make hive inspections easier.
The smoker is used to puff smoke gently into the hive which is said to help calm your bees which then makes for a smoother inspection.
Our most popular model is the 7" smoker. It is also included as part of our Starter Kit. Smokers are measured by the height of the canister (body) not the height of the entire body. It is compact, yet versatile in helping you make your hive inspections more enjoyable.

Smokers are used to gently blow puffs of smoke into a hive or on frames to help calm your bees and make your hive inspections a little easier.
