    • We borrowed ours from Sue Cobey… I just saw something about them, maybe in the new issue of Bee Culture? They are absolutely wonderful, but remember to have a squirt bottle of diluted syrup (your choice of what) if you’re shaking bees on warm days. It helps to keep them calm and cool.

    Where can I buy from and how much does it coast?

    • At the end of the blog I mention that Sue’s came from: Greg’s Heating & Air Conditioning, 530-865-9677, 740 East Walker St., Orland, Ca 95963. As it was lent to us, I have no idea what they cost, but I bet Greg’s would know
