Is there anything, non-chemical, food grade, that I could put out to discourage swarms from landing in a stack of boxes? I've read alot about how to attract swarms and lemongrass but I would like to discourage them from produce crates.

Thanks.

Thanks for the suggestion. I don't want to have the chemical or smell of Bee-Go with produce, but got me thinking about almond extract (Fischer's Bee-Quick ingredient?)

Rather than trying to discourage the swarm, why not encourage the swarm to go where you want them? Put a swarm trap out with a couple dark combs.

Give the bees what they are looking for and they should ignore your produce crates.
