    What kind of alcohol do you guys use to put your queens in? Is it just "Alcohol" or is there another name for it? I wanna make sure I get the right one because I have to go shoulder tapping(19) for someone to get it for me.

    GONE are the days of fake ID's, now they make you slide it through the credit card scanner to make sure your drivers liscense is authentic.

    BAM.

    Well, just some isopropanol alcohol.

    It simply must evaporate, it is just an agent to contain, preserve and transport the queen's pheromone.

    Isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol will work fine and you can buy it at any drug store and many other places without being 21.

    You can't drink it....

    To dispose of old queens and get swarm lure from them, you dump the old queen in a jar of alcohol and later use the alcohol for swarm lure.

    Hey Guys,

    I once wrangled bees. But now, knowing better, I just let them bee.
