it's a lot more expensive than smoke.
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

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:
