Has anyone made their own fume boards? I would like to make a few fume boards before Sat. They look very easy but what type of fabric would be best?  I thought it looks like felt but really unsure?? It seems that any type of natural fabric would work!  Thanks Debbie

I was told to use flannel in the construction of fume boards.  Give us your feedback as to what you use and your results.  Thanks.

What do you use to creat the actually "fume"?

I would also recommend flannel.  We used to use fume boards for wax moths and flannel worked well.

Judy,

There are various "fumes" on the market.  Bee-Gone, Bee-Quick, etc.  I have personally never used any, but I understand some of them smell pretty bad and you don't want to get it on your clothes.

If you ever smelled baby puke thats what bee-go reminds me of,but it does the job of getting bees out of the boxes. All my fume boards have felt and have lasted many years
