G'day Guys and Girls,

Just wondering if anyone knows of any suppliers of Bee Quick/Bee Go or its equivalent here in Australia? I've got a hive in a tree that i'm working on doing a trapout on at the moment. The tree lopper wants it gone ASAP! so i have to expedite things a little... I was thinking a few drops of product in the base of the tree (there was an entrance in the bottom) and they will, hopefully, move up in to the box that i have placed on top

Stink ain't going to get the queen or the young out of the hive.    If he wants it going asap, let him cut it and you do the cut out.

I want to get the majority of the bees out and then i can figure out the rest from there - i'm hoping (maybe wishful thinking) that the Queen has moved in to the box that i put on top

Is she laying eggs in there?   Remember, bees store honey over the eggs.  Eggs will be on the bottom of the hive.

Bee Go is Butyric acid.
Best I can tell from the smell and similar reaction of the bees, Bee Quick is Benzaldehyde.  Both should be available from a chemical place.

Bee Go smells like vomit.
Bee Quick smells like almond extract.

If you go back through very old journals or old bee reference books you will find the formulas, in imperial but they are easy enough to convert to metric. I had an old friend that use to make up some amazing concoctions for bees and associated issues. Just about all the stuff he mixed either came from the stock & grain, grocer and or chemical shops.

Don't get your hopes too high, I assure you will be disappointed in both your desires.   Get your plan B ready now, you will need it.

Seriously though i know the only way i'm going to get them out is to cut the side of the tree open
