I've been trying to find reviews for the ebay Chinese version of Swarm Commander but had no luck. Does anyone on here have any experience with it? It is significantly cheaper

Lemongrass works exceptionally well. Add a little fresh beeswax and some propolis to the trap and you are set. Works great.

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.
