This was the first year I tried using the bee-go. Does the smel stick with the supers after you take them inside? I only used one squirt per board per hive, and it was a very small squirt.

If vomit has an essential oil, it is Butyric acid.

No, the smell doesn't stay in the super, or on the frames, nor does it in any way contaminate the honey. That is, if you use the fume boards and don't squirt it directly on the frame top bars as I saw one lame brain do. You really need more than one squirt to make the boards work effectively though. We run a stream back and forth across the board several times. Not much fun standing around watching the grass grow while waiting for the fumes to work. Also, if you haven't done so, paint the fume boards black; they work much better.  grin

Use it as supposed and you will certainly minimize the hardships your nostrils will go through but the stuff is sho enough stanky and an extreme eye irritant. Be careful with it!

Alan Bukley had my truck stinkin' of that stuff for two weeks!

I much prefer Bee quick!

.....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.....

Most people I run across find the aroma of bee quick quite nice to their senses. Definitely can't say that about bee go or honey robber.
