I was just doing a search about Fisher's bee quick - which I would buy if a local supplier had it, I hate paying shipping, when I came across a thread with a recipe for a super clearing repellant from Grant.
It was Artificial Almond scent mixed 50/50 with Tea-tree oil and some 90% rubbing alcohol added for good measure.
Has anybody tried this? I wonder if Grant is still using it?
I will only have to pull supers from 8-10 hives in August. I've tried brushing, I've tried blowing, and now I would like to try a non-offensive odor method.
