    I haven't tried mine yet but I sure hope it works better than that! You're right G3, those bees (after the long trip down that ribbed hose, have to pass through that impeller! :shock:

    I am sorry, but the way I saw it the bees did not go through the impeller but into the box by the sucking the bees in like it is suppose to be, I surely did not like the ribbed hose though.

    Kebee: Upon further review, you are right! :eek: When I looked at the first video and I saw that Y coming off the vacuum I wrongly assumed that the bees would have to pass thru there. Shoulda watched them all too.
    Better have my second cup before I start commenting I guess. :???:

    This thread reminded me of my sister's use of her Kerb-bee (Kirby) on a yellow-jacket nest in her eaves. The Kirby does pull through the impeller, making it quite useful for hornet and yellow-jacket vacuuming.

    Yep, a 4lb hammer will knock in 3/4" frame nails too, but a 4 oz hammer works better

    Total overkill....... Imagine carting that around on some jobs.
