Summary

The use of smoke should be reduced to a minimum. Smoke should be produced with preference from natural materials and chemical / synthetical repellents are not admitted. (NL standards for organic beekeeping II.5.Beekeeping practice, breeding, increasing stocks)

Difference

The NATURLAND standard is more detailed. The EU Regulation 2092/91 does not regulate the materials used to produce smoke, and the prohibition of synthetic repellents is restricted to the act of harvesting honey.

Justification

To avoid contamination with harmful substances and to minimize the disturbance of the bees.
