I have just started with bee keeping a couple of weeks ago and have to active hives. I need a smoker but I live in Africa so it is difficult to find one. Are there plans out there to make my own?

Thanks

Welcome to our Inernational Beekeeping Forum. You have just added to the diversity we have here! :thumbsup:
I don't know of any plans for smokers but someone here may well be able to help out.

Welcome to the forum, Slag. :hi:
Nice to have someone from my time zone together with me on the forum. You'll find that here you can not only garner information about bees, but also make friends and even have an occasional good laugh. :rolling:

I'll have to have my son help me with some pictures tomorrow. I got the plans for the hives from an Australian that I met here.

Will the wires be able to hold the hive when it's filled with honey? I would worry about them pulling out.

I would like to hear the story behind and story Indiana to Ethiopia.
From a RPCV (Returned Peace Corps Volunteer)83-85 as a beekeeper Tunisia North ​Africa



BEE HAPPY Jim 134 :)
I have always lived in Indiana until God called me to missions. Now my family and another do orphan care on a 50 acre property. My wife runs the school and I am in charge of keeping the facilities running. Beekeeping has always sounded interesting and we have plenty of mouths to feed. Currently 43 children.
