    Okay, thanks.
    I think I will order a queen today. I've been wanting to try the "queen juice" for a trap. What are the ingredients?
    Thanks!

    Do I need a new queen?

    Re: Anyone know what tree this is?

    Hi!
    The Golden Rain Tree may be alright. Some invasives are more prolific than others like Kudzu and Fireants. Others are great like
    Honey Bees and Black Locust!
