it's a lot more expensive than smoke.

I have heard other claims that it helped with mites and other problems

I just wonder if works or just snake oil

Ditto. Just use your smoker. You will achieve the desired effect and you can direct your bees (move them where you want them or where you don't) with smoke.

It has its uses, but I think most of the claims are..well...a little over the top and never proven.

It is great for setting off robbing in the fall though.... :roll:
