“Colorado Bee Vac” Has to be the best Bee Vacuum on the market today!
Large capacity of a hive body super, Mann Lake Premium Select lumber, for a catch box. Twice the holding capacity of most of the bee vacuums being sold today.
Superior ventilation with a full hardwire screen top to help keep your bees from over heating during transportation.
Can add additional catch boxes for really large hive extractions in excess of 8-10 lbs. of bees or catching multiple swarms in a single day.
Changing from one catch box to the next is simply a matter of setting the vacuum head on top of the next box in line and connecting the hose. The 1.75 hp modified shop vacuum head, with a 10′ power cord, is capable of vacuuming bees using a 10′(included), 20′, or 30′ hose. Vacuum suction is adjusted with a simple twist of the valve on the vacuum.
Emptying the catch box is simply a matter of setting the box of bees on top of your prepared hive super and pulling the bottom out. Leave the box on top of the prepared hive overnight and come back in the morning and pick up your empty catch box.
If you are in a hurry (or the bees have not co-operated by migrating into the prepared hive super overnight) and you only have the one catch box you can slap the catch box on the bee hive super box and knock the bees down. The bees are more upset with the quick empty method but it allows you to empty the box so you can go out and catch that next swarm of bees. Three swarms or one good extraction pays for the vacuum and you will have the best bee vacuum on the market for several years of service.
One year warranty from the date of purchase on the vacuum top/head. Return the non working unit and we will replace it with a new one for free (does not include shipping cost). Two years of doing extractions we have not had a vacuum head fail yet, so we are secure in the reliability of the vacuum. Replacement warranty does not include abuse such as dropping, crushing, or water damage to the unit.
