I removed the filter and put some window screen inside the vac container.  I used it today to clean up stragglers after removing a swarm.  It worked nicely - few dead bees.  It is a pretty weak vacuum to start with, but that seems good for bees.  I would need to work out a way to fit a container inside for big jobs.

The big advantage is that it runs on a battery pack.
