Smokers & Smoker Fuel

Bee Smokers, Fuel & Bellows

Using smokers can help calm honey bees and keep beekeepers safer during the honey collection process. Mann Lake offers a range of beekeeping smokers, the required smoker fuels, and other accessories that make using a smoker easier.

Portable Smoke Dispensers

A bee smoker is a portable vessel with an angled, funnel-shaped top that holds wood or other dried materials, such as burlap, that produces smoke. It cages the burning material, and the smoke is emitted through the funnel. The beekeeper directs smoke into the bee box.

Bee Smoker Size Options

Choosing the right smoker depends on your hive's size, the number of hives you manage, and your comfort level. Smaller smokers are great for quick checks or smaller apiaries, producing cool smoke efficiently without the need for frequent refills.

Larger models, on the other hand, can hold more smoker fuel like pine needles, allowing for a longer burn time, ideal for extended use or multiple hives.

The goal is to generate a gentle, cool smoke that calms the bees without causing them stress. Whether you choose a small or large smoker, ensuring it lights easily and burns steadily will make your beekeeping tasks smoother and safer.

Getting the Most Out of Your Bee Smoker

A bee smoker with a bellows attached is the easiest to operate since the keeper only needs to hold one device. Our beekeeping smokers collection features various types, such as pro-bellow smokers, wood bellow smokers, dome-top smokers, and more.

We also have other beekeeping accessories to make the process simpler:

  • Bee smoker without bellows
  • Standalone bellows
