I have a couple of traps out that have been in place for several weeks. How long will lemongrass oil or pheromones last? Do they need to be renewed periodically?

I rarely do. And traps re-stocked with fresh old combs work a second time without a second dose.

LGO can last a real long time if applied correctly. I use a Q tip with LGO one one end and Queen juice on the other. Then I staple it it to the underside of the telescopic cover rim above the entrance. Out of the rain and wide open to wind drift. Bees BTW, can smell very good.
