Battery Powered Bucket Backpack Bee Vacuum unit is built for the rugged environment of doing removals. Large 7 gallon bucket will hold 50k bees with near zero deaths. The motor is powerful, normal bee-sucking speed is about 50%, and 100% power is great for clearing a hose clog sucking up a swarm quickly (careful, it can suffocate them). The 7 foot hose will reach about anywhere you want. The 18” nozzle will reach up between comb and suck up the bees. The battery will run for 6+ hours, and most customers get 8+ hours of runtime on a single charge (lithium ion battery). This battery is rated for 500 cycles at 80% discharge, so it will last a long, long time. The gate valve on the side is vented, so when done, you can pull the hose and close it, but still allow a light airflow to keep the bees cool and provide fresh air. The charger is powerful enough to run the fan in the rare chance you drain the battery. It has a simple red / green LED to indicate when charging & when the battery is full. There are several models of the Everything Bee Vacuums available.
Reasons to own an Everything Battery Powered Bee Vacuum:
- Tired of hauling a generator or dragging long extension cords?
- Tired of spending 10 minutes assembling your hive body vacuum?
- And later your straps slip & you start again?
- Tired of killing bees because you had too much pressure?
- Tired of bees flying off when you try to put them in a hive?
- If you have done a cutout, you know how helpful a bee vacuum can be.
The Battery Powered Bucket Backpack Bee Vacuum is sometimes referred to as the BPBBBV 🙂

This next video is an unedited video of a cutout using The Everything Bee Vacuum. It shows from first opening the underside of a mobile home through reuniting the bees and their brood. Even though the vacuum is only a couple of feet away, it’s nearly inaudible over the bees. The pressure is set at about 50% for this fairly hot cutout. Also note how easily the bees are put with their brood without bees escaping everywhere at the end.
