Bee Vac Advice
« on: April 15, 2024, 01:14:47 am »
Hello. What size vacuum cleaner needed for beevac? I locate one with motor on top of drum that is 800w. Seems to have good suction but I would like some advise please. 14kPa suction power delivering 25 Li/sec airflow.

Most any of them will be too strong for bees. You must provide an adjustment such as a screened hole that can br opened and closed as needed. Google "Bushkill bee vac".  The power needs to be adjustable as the receiving container fills with bees.
