Throughout history, mankind has used the smoke from fire to help calm the honeybees. Beekeepers today carry on this practice by using a bellowed smoker. When threatened, honeybees produce an alarm pheromone to communicate with each other to defend the hive. Smoke interferes with this chemical message, keeping the honeybees in a docile state.
Light your smoker in style. Each "easy strike" box contains 50 premium five-inch wooden matches. Quickly ignite your smoker without burning your fingers and drop the match inside to fuel the fire. Don't go to the apiary without a box of good matches!
These matches are also perfect for lighting candles, fireplaces, campfires, or a wood stove.
