Hipster Animals: Urban Apiarist
HoneyLove demonstrates how to use a smoker, and explains why we use smoke when working our bees.
“The four major inventions transforming beekeeping from a sideline interest to an industry appeared within a fifteen-year span: the moveable frame hive (1851), the wax comb foundation (1857), the centrifugal honey extractor (1865), and the bellows smoker (1873).”
