Hi all
This is my first post on the forum and it is indeed very interesting to see the comments of beekeepers across the pond.
 A friend of mine has a bee hoover for collecting swarms that was purchased in the states. Can anyone give me the details of a supplier.
Many thanks
Regards Ian

A question I can finally answer with some know how.
We don't buy bee vacs. We make them.

Okay we buy the parts but otherwise we make them.

I was given information on how to build one in my moving bees topic. The actual link is http://www.beesource.com/plans/beevac/index.htm which I believe is also can be found through the Hive Plans, Construction tips area. There was also a a way to build one similar to what I did which was to use two 5 gallon buckets. I can't quite remember where that link is.

I hope this helps.

Sincerely,
Brendhan

Brushy Mt. sells a Bee vac, but it's actually the part that connects to your shop vac.  I think Walter T. Kelly also has them:
