My Heilyser JB600 Vaporizer just arrived.  Because I have only a few hives I chose this vaporizer over the electric.  Has anyone use this one before?  If so do you have any tips for me on when and how to use?  Thanks for all of your help in advance.

stay up wind.   even then if your not wearing a resporator w/ acid cartidges you will get a wiff now and then.  You'll know it when it happens.  It chokes you.  I use 12 volt from 20 ft away, always up wind and it still happen now and then.   I give them a shot of smoke, seal the front enterence with carpet pad and duct tape any holes

I have open screened bottoms on the hives right now.  Would you seal those off as well?
