I have used both and really haven't seen anything that would make me feel it is any better. It does work, but so does Anise. Having hive smells like combs, propolis, and a decent cavity size is more important than the lure IMO. The lure helps, but I have caught tons of swarms in deadout boxes with no lure at all. I have a bottle of lemon grass I put retired queens in, and that with the hive smell reels them in.
