You do not want to singe your bees. Once your hive is open, never blow smoke down into the hive. Firstly your bees will not like it and secondly if you do this into the supers where the honey is stored, you will blow in minute carbon deposits which will show up and taint your honey. To remove bees off the tops of the frames you only need a couple of puffs of smoke over them. I have found that I seldom do any smoking over the hive when starting my inspection. When closing the hive to enable me to refit supers, queen excluder and crown board I give the bees a puff or two, to encourage them off the edges so I don’t crush them.

As you will discover when opening your hive your bees like to seal these gaps and the frames. However, your hive tool will crack these seals for you to remove the frames and hive parts. It is also used as an antiseptic by the bees in the cell walls to prevent mould and infections. Bees will also mummify larger creatures which have died within the hive, but are too large to eject. Mummifying the carcass stops it decaying and makes it odourless and harmless to them. Propolis is also used in alternative medicines and is said to relieve various conditions including inflammation, viral diseases, ulcers and minor burns.
