Re: Using swarm lure
welcome to beesource thucar!
i'm not familar with that product but it does sound like a larger than necessary amount.
a commonly used lure here is lemongrass oil, and just a drop or two is enough. i doesn't hurt to refresh this once a week or so.
it also helps if you have discarded queens that have been put in alcohol, and again just a drop or two refreshed every week or so on that.
i use michael bush's suggestion and use a q-tip, one end having the lemongrass oil and the other end having the queen juice.
