Has anyone or does anyone use a product that they have found to work as good as a commercial product to rid supers of bees when robbing liquid gold??

I use a leaf blower that I bought at Wal-mart for about $100. I just stand the super up vertically on it's front and blow the bees out from the top in front of the hive that I removed the super from. The bees have never stung me while doing this as they simply relate the air coming out of the leaf blower as a super strong wind.
I recommend a leaf blower that produces at least a 200 mph blast.

Thanx,

I have tried that and it works.  I was really looking for a home remedy smell or something to use instead of having to buy a commercial product.
