    Never heard of using GP for SHB control.

    could be in ref to OldSol's online Aipiguard recipe, it uses a little crisco, lots of peeps have been calling this stuff grease patties mistakenly for a few tears now.

    good apiguard replacement and cheap to make.

    and no you must use wintergreen

    wintergreen and spearmint are 2 completely different modes of action.

    I always associated GPs with a tracheal mite treatment.

    Read few threads that claim SHB eat greasy patties. Have no knowledge of it myself.

    Winter green will get you queenless. It's not a good time of the year to be queenless.

    Thought you had to mix the crisco with borax and pack in a cd case for beetles.
