a little water and a chemical free shop towel works fine.

I have found adult SHB in comb that had been frozen for a few weeks and then set outside to warm up, on a stand, in a medium box with cover and no bottom.

I try not to buy anything from china if I can help it.
The real Swarm Commander has caught 8 swarms for me so it was well worth the price.
I haven't tried lemon grass oil but it's super cheap.
I wonder and would guess, if you froze the frames for a week, then thawed then for a week, then froze them again, would that end the life cycle?
At what point does an egg "decide" to hatch?

I get an error for the original site's...
looking back I see you purchased 2 completely setup hives, is that correct?
the frames with all the bees look like the more "well seasoned" frames that probably contain most of the old comb. ...
this is just me saying this but... a few days is probably do-able if they are sealed, and not in black trash bags in the sun.

straight "roach killer (boric acid)" or some kind of mixture?
You have mites. Why waist your time killing bees to test for them.
If you're going to treat, then treat. If you're not going to treat, then don't.
But if you are going to treat, the "generally...
I have a ProVape110 so it takes about 20 seconds per hive. I bought it last year and attribute my last winter's 100% survival rate to it.
