We Love Smokers


"It may not be what you think. We're referring to an apiary smoker, which is a piece of tall cylindrical bee equipment that more or less resembles a kettle. Its work is to prevent the honeybees from stinging an apiarist when he or she is harvesting honey or doing repairs on the hive. Since this item has to be strong and long-lasting it is usually constructed of metals such as copper, stainless steel or tin-plated steel. The latter is the cheapest of the three because its quality is not that good."
