Did I apply it right and what to do now? Swarm commander.
I got some vials of swarm commander. I applied it to the entrance and on some of the bars as directed.
It was later I saw the posts from people saying to put the cotton swab in a ziplock bag partially open bag to make it last longer. I was not aware of this technique so I did not.
So... what would you do? Reapply in the same way a couple of weeks from now, or use the ziplock bag method in a couple of weeks. Or something else? I'm concerned about overdoing it.
I do already have some old brood comb in there.
My grandfather and great-uncle kept bees and my fiancée's grandfather, too. I want to pass this tradition along.
